Whole Wheat "Goldfish" Crackers
My brother loves goldfish crackers. He asked me to create a recipe using them as the featured ingredient. He was thinking somewhere along the lines of goldfish suspended in blue jello, (and no he is not 5 years old, he is in his 30's). I didn't make this creation, I know I'm a bad sister. But I did the next best thing, I found this great recipe from Smitten Kitchen and made these instead. You may have noticed my crackers are not shaped like goldfish (strike two) but that is because I don't have a goldfish cookie cutter, I guess he will just have to settle for starfish instead. I hope my brother appreciates this, although if he wants to actually eat these crackers he is either going to have to come visit me in SLC or make them himself, strike three I'm out.
Whole Wheat "Goldfish" Crackers (or any shape you fancy)
6 ounces Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Coarsely Grated
4 tablespoons Unsalted Butter
1/2 cup Whole Wheat Flour
1/4 cup All-Purpose Flour
1/8 teaspoon Onion Powder
1/4 teaspoon Salt
Preheat oven to 350 degree F and line baking sheet with parchment paper. Place all the ingredients in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the dough attachment. Turn food processor on and mix until dough forms a ball, about, 2 minutes. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for a half an hour. On a floured surface roll dough out and cut into any shapes you like. Bake till golden, about 15 minutes. Cool on wire rack.
