This is one of the appetizers that I made for snacking on Thanksgiving Day.
My family really loved them.
They are completely addicting.
Spicy and super cheesy—- two great combinations.
Cheddar Walnut Crackers
(adapted from Savoring Time in the Kitchen )
3 tablespoons butter
8 ounces cheddar cheese, finely grated
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
5 tablespoons chopped walnuts
Sea salt for sprinkling over crackers
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium bowl cream the butter and add the cheese. Add the flour and salt. Mix well. Blend in the nuts. The dough should be a smooth consistency.
Roll into 3 logs and chill at least 1-2 hours.
Cut each log in to discs approximately 1/8 inch thick and place on a parchment lined sheet pan. Sprinkle lightly with the sea salt.
Bake for 10-15 minutes until somewhat crisp. (The crackers will not be crispy like crackers from a box. They will be tender).
Cool on a wire rack and store in an airtight container. These can be stored for up to 3 days. (I promise, they won’t last that long).
