HOMEMADE CHEEZ-IT CRACKERS

1 cup flour
4 tablespoons cold butter, cut into small squares
1 (8-ounce) bag grated extra-sharp Cheddar cheese
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
  • Combine all ingredients in food processor, and pulse until crumbly. 
  • Add cold water, a tablespoon at a time, until dough comes together. 
  • Form into ball, wrap in plastic wrap, and chill in the freezer for at least 30 minutes. 
  • Place dough between two pieces of plastic wrap or parchment paper, and roll out to 1/8 inch thickness. 
  • Transfer to parchment-lined baking sheet, and, using pizza cutter or sharp knife, cut into 1 inch squares. 
  • Sprinkle with kosher salt and bake for 25 minutes. 
  • Test for crispiness; crackers may take a few minutes more to finish crisping. 
  • Remove from oven when crisp and just starting to brown. 
  • Let cool and serve.
