Cheddar Cheese Cracker is a type of biscuit that is prepared with cheddar cheese. The term ‘cracker’ is generally associated with flat biscuits with a savoury, salty flavour, quite contrary to what a cookie looks or tastes.
Cheddar cheese crackers are made by layering dough with cheddar cheese, salt and spices. These crackers are crispy and have a strong cheddar cheese flavour. The holes in the crackers are called ‘docking’ holes and are placed in the dough to stop air pockets from forming in the cracker while baking.
At home, the crackers can be prepared by first creaming together the butter and cheese. The flour, salt and pepper are gradually added, until well blended. The dough is kneaded until smooth, rolled into a long log and chilled in the refrigerator. The dough is then sliced thin and placed on a cookie sheet. The crackers are baked at 350 degree Fahrenheit for 8-10 minutes or until they begin to turn golden. The salty taste and cheesy flavour is crafted in such a delicate and delicious balance that you can have Cheddar cheese crackers anytime with anything.
There are several by-products of Cheddar Cheese Crackers:
• Crushed Cheddar Cheese Crackers: The crackers are crushed either with hand or by placing them in a cloth and pounding them with a hammer for a few seconds. The latter procedure tends to impart a finer crushed product than the former.
• Powdered Cheddar Cheese Crackers: You may powder the biscuits in a dry grinder or by placing them between a cloth or plastic sheet and pounding them with a hammer. They may be powdered fine or coarsely as per the recipe requirements.
