Ingredients

    8 oz cheddar cheese shredded
    1 c flour
    3/4 t salt
    dash paperika
    dash cayenne pepper
    3-4 T water
    4 T cold butter cut into cubes

Directions

makes 16 oz of crackers
In the work bowl of a food processor pulse the flour, seasonings and salt together.

Pulse in butter until it resembles coarse meal
Pulse the cheese in 4 installments, process until its looks coarse meal

Add the water 1 T at a time. Start with 3 and slowly add the 4th if needed. Pulse in 2 second bursts until dough can be pressed into a ball.

Press dough into plastic wrap, forming a disc. Refrigerate for 20 min to 24 hours. The cooling process allows the butter and cheese to solidify producing a cracker that's crispier. It also makes rolling out easier when the dough is very cold.
Transfer the rolled out dough to a sheet pan and cut into desired shape, or simply into squares, using a pizza cutter.

Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes or until the crackers are browned on the edges and puffed. Really start to watch them after 10 minutes as cooking times vary. Remove crackers from tray and cool.
