Cheese Crackers | Inspired by Charm


Most of you clearly know this by now – I am pretty much obsessed with cheese. Way back in first grade I brought cheese and crackers for snack time at school. My favorite was that sharp cheddar cheese that came in a small plastic tub and was sandwiched between two crackers. It was heaven. I don’t recall many specifics from first grade and kindergarten, but I do remember that. I think it was because one time I forgot my snack and was very upset about it. And by upset I mean totally devastated. Thankfully, being the angel that she is, my mom brought in my snack at some point during the day. It was cheese and crackers.

This obsession with cheese, unlike many other things, has stayed with me into adulthood. In fact, I love just about anything with cheese. So when I came upon this recipe for ‘Sharp Cheddar Cheese Crackers’ from the fabulous Joy the Baker, I knew I had to give them a try. I mean, how cool would it be to say I actually made a cracker. Not many people can say that, right?

Armed with two of my favorite cheeses from Cracker Barrel, I knew I couldn’t go wrong. I decided to make two varieties of these crackers. The first would be with Sharp Cheddar Cheese and the second would be with Jalapeño Cheese (I didn’t mean to double up on the heat, but that’s how these things go sometimes.)

Clearly the cheese is the superstar in this recipe. The full, rich, and authentic flavor of Cracker Barrel‘s cheese shines through and packs these little bites with so much flavor you wouldn’t believe it. Plus, one package of cheese is exactly how much you’ll need to make one batch of these delights. I was actually surprised by how easily they come together. You start with butter and lots of delicious cheese. Mix in some spices, flour, and a little water and the dough just comes together beautifully. I was amazed.

As I mentioned above, I made two variations of this recipe. You could use any combination of cheese that you like. You could also add in different spices and ingredients to create a really unique flavor. For another option, be sure to try Joy’s Chili Cheese variety.

Split the dough into two equal discs and chill for thirty minutes. Once chilled, roll out thin.

At this point, I used a pizza slicer to cut out squares. You could also use a cookie or biscuit cutter if you prefer a different shape.

Prick each cracker with a wooden skewer or something similar in shape, pop into the oven, and prepare for your house to smell like cheddar cheese heaven.

Let’s check out the full recipe.

Cheddar and Jalapeño Cheese Crackers:

Here’s what you will need:

8 ounces Extra Sharp Cracker Barrel Cheddar Cheese, shredded
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons water
10 slices of jarred jalapeños, finely chopped

In a bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat together butter, cheese, salt, and pepper until blended. With the mixer on low, slowly add flour. At this point, your mixture will become dry and crumbly.

Mix in chopped jalapeños. Add water, one tablespoon at a time. Beat until the mixture just comes together into a ball. At this point, the mixture should be moist. If it feels wet, simply add a touch more flour. Divide the mixture into two discs, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 25 – 30 minutes.

Once chilled, preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough very thin, about an eighth of an inch thick.

Then, using a pizza slicer, cut horizontal and vertical lines into your dough to create about 1-inch square crackers. Poke each cracker with a wood skewer or fork. Place crackers on prepared baking sheet.

Bake for 13 to 15 minutes until golden brown and crisp. Cool before serving. Chill in an airtight container for up to three days.

*To make the Jalapeño Cheese Crackers, simply omit the jalapeños and replace the Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese with Jalapeño cheese.

I can’t begin to tell you how delicious these little suckers are. The taste is similar to those oh-so-familiar crackers you can buy in the store, but nothing compares to the freshness, flakiness, and super cheese-filled flavor of homemade goodies. You’ll be so glad you made them. And trust me on this one, you can do it! Now go give them a try and report back on your success!

      Cheese glorious cheese … those crackers sound great, I’m going to try baking them with whole wheat pastry flour. Fav fall inspired cheese dish(s) : fondue baby! and Ina Garten’s Goat Cheese Lasagna, although I make this year round I found it really great to make as my contribution to fall get together buffets.

      Cheese, glorious cheese! I love stuffed shells, with a blend of ricotta, mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses, dressed lightly with a homemade marinara sauce topped with fresh grated Parmesan Regiano and baked to a ooey, gooey goodness. (That doesn’s sound obsessed, does it?) BTW, can’t wait to bake up a batch of these crackers.

      This year I found a new love: toasted baguette with goat cheese, broiled til just a little melty, then topped with fresh figs and a drizzle of honey. HEAVEN.

      I love baking casseroles when the cooler weather finally hits us. I think all of my casseroles have some sort of cheese in them! Lasagna and stuffed shells are my favorite. So warm & comforting on a crisp autumn day 😉

    • Bing Boettner at

      I have this cheese pimiento recipe I received from a friend. You melt cheese and add several things to it. I pour equal amounts of cheese onto small ramekins and add color. I spread it to layers of white bread ( different color for each layer), cut the crusts off and cut the sandwich into small squares and rectangles. The side view of this appetizer sandwich is divine! Good with vegetable soup!

      My favorite comfort food to make with cheese when there’s a chill in the air is the original Fannie Farmer Macaroni and Cheese recipe. It is just the perfect dish to warm your soul on a cold day.
      I like to use various types of cheese in it to switch it up a bit. Yummy!

      I love to cook – here’s a really simple 2-ingredient recipe – Buy 2 packages of Hillshire Farms Polska Kielbasa, and a bag of Ore-Ida Frozen Potatoes O-Brien. In two separate frying pans, coat with oil, fry potatoes up in one slowly until cooked, and in the other frying pan, cut up kielbasa into slices – about 1/2-inch thick, cook up. That’s it – toss them together – can be re-heated in a microwave, and it’s a great quick dinner. So always have on hand kielbasa (lasts quite a while in refrigerator – it’s already cooked, you’re just heating it up, and buy a few bags of the frozen potatoes. (In case you can’t find potatoes o-brien, it’s basically just a bag of hash browns with onions, red and green peppers, etc.!)

      I like cheddar cheese on crackers (simple & good).
      Thanks for the contest.

      Mac & cheese

      Easy! Around fall I start craving mass quantities of chowder. Being a cheese addict myself, I always toss in large handfuls of shredded cheese in, until it’s silky smooth, thick, and packed full of cheesy flavor! Add in a big ole’ crusty baguette and curl up with a warm blanket, a book or a movie, and that’s my idea of a wonderful fall night!

      Fall means fire pits, family/friends and comfort food…slow smoked ham mac & three cheeses, beer cheese bisque, with your cracker recipe or bacon cheddar potato casserole. That’s how I show “cheesy love” when the leaves start to furn!!!

      These look just like what I’ve been looking for! Do wish there was a link for a one-page printer ready recipe, though. I will definitely make them!
