Cheddar Cornmeal Icebox Crackers

Share

 
Makes 20 crackers
 



 

Ingredients

 
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons yellow cornmeal
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons coarse salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons chilled unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 cup (2 1/2 ounces) finely grated cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon milk
 



 

Instructions

 
Step 1: Combine flour, cornmeal, salt, cayenne, and nutmeg in the bowl of a food processor; pulse to combine. 
 
 
Step 2: Add butter; pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add cheese; pulse until combined. With machine running, add milk; process until dough comes together and is well combined.
 
  
 
Step 3: Transfer dough to a work surface. Shape dough into a 2-inch-wide log. Wrap with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 24 hours.
 
 
Step 4: Heat oven to 325 degrees. Slice chilled log into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Transfer slices to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake immediately, rotating sheet once, until crackers are golden brown and firm in the center, 25 to 35 minutes. Alternatively, you can slice and stack pre-sliced cracker dough and freeze in an airtight container for up to 1 month—no need to defrost before baking
