21 crackers (serving size: 3 crackers)

Kids will love creating their own crunchy treats with an assortment of two-inch cookie cutters. Though an adult will need to do the oven work, even toddlers can lend a hand with most of the steps.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400º. Coat the cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Dust the cutting board with 3 tablespoons flour.

Step 2

Place the 3/4 cup flour, cheddar cheese, butter, cream cheese, and salt in a medium mixing bowl. Using a pastry blender, blend until the mixture looks like a cross between Rice Krispies and cookie crumbs.

Step 3

Place the egg yolk in a small bowl; add ice water and blend. Pour into cheese mixture; combine with a fork or your hands until it forms a ball.

Step 4

Roll the dough around on cutting board; flatten it with your hands. Roll it out until it's about 1/4 inch thick. Cut into shapes using cookie cutters. Arrange the shapes on cookie sheet.

Step 5

Lightly spray tops of crackers with cooking spray, then sprinkle with kosher salt, if desired. Bake until lightly browned, about 8 to 10 minutes. With a spatula, transfer to a wire rack to cool. The crackers will keep for up to two weeks refrigerated in a tightly sealed container.
