You have got to make these crackers. They are amazingly good and spectacularly easy. Better than Triscuits.
I made this particular batch for my French class dinner although I neglected to make their presence known on my carte du jour. Which is unfortunate because I like making up faux-french sounding phrases for the amusement/annoyance of my fellow francophiles and and of course for the embellishment of the menu. The more elaborate and foo-foo the frenchier.
So Freaking Easy Crackers
(Craquelins si faciles, in French)
Originally Morine’s Cheese Puffs but these are not puffy
and I have modified the recipe
Oven 450 degrees
1 cup flour, I imagine rice flour works…
2 cups shredded cheese
(melting-kind-of-cheese, cheddar, Monterey Jack, whatever.
I like to grate my own cheese but in this case I
used a bag of pre-shredded “Mexican” cheese)
1.5 sticks melted butter
1 tsp Cayenne pepper (or not)
I added garlic powder and thyme
but you could add nearly anything,
even fucking anchovies if you were a horrible person.
Mix and put TB sized balls on a baking sheet spaced apart,
they spread a little
Bake at 450 for 12-15 mins.
A big plus here is that you can make the dough in advance and
keep it in the refrigerator or you can bake them in advance too.
