Makes about 3 cups crackers We think homemade snacks are the best snacks, and these cute little fish are too good to pass up. We added a bit of whole wheat flour and went light on the butter to make these a bit more virtuous, but no less delicious—in fact, they’re more delicious than the store-bought variety. You can order a fish cookie cutter online, if you like, or they can be cut into squares to keep it super simple.
- 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 8 oz sharp Cheddar, shredded
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cubed
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic granules
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- Preheat the oven to 350°F.
- In a large food processor, combine the flours, Cheddar, butter, garlic, and salt. Pulse to combine the mixtures, then process until a ball forms (be patient, this can take longer than you expect).
- Turn the dough out onto a floured counter and, working in batches, if needed, roll the dough until it is an even 1/4-inch thick. Cut into whatever shape you like, then transfer to a baking sheet. Use a skewer to poke a hole (or more, if making larger crackers) in the center of the cracker. For fish, place the hole where the eye would be.
- Bake until the crackers begin to brown around the edges, about 12 minutes for small fish. Cool completely, then transfer to a covered container to store.
