Whenever I go on a "road trip" usually Vegas, San Fran, San Diego, Santa Barbra... I ALWAYS buy a box of white cheddar cheese-its. I seriously cannot get enough of them. Then a while back I saw a recipe for homemade cheese crackers on my friend Kayle's Blog and I knew I had to make them. I have made them about 5 times now, I love them, my sisters love them, my friends do, heck you will love them!
These are SOO easy to make and SOO delicious. I usually use a Sharp English Cheddar or sometimes just whatever I have on hand, and I always sprinkle them with sea salt. I have even sprinkled parmsean on top of them before baking before, I like cheese what can I say?! 😉
In high school I always bought a bag of cheese its and peanut m&m's that was my snack of choice. And after just eating some chewy ooey gooey blondies with m&ms in them these cheese crackers sound absolutely delighitful!!
Do yourself a favor and make these now, they are too easy and toooooooo freaking delicious you won't be able to eat just one!!Print
