Gluten Free Cheese Crackers

image_pdfimage_print

My kids had a parade in my honor when they saw these cheese crackers sitting on the counter. It has been over three months since we’ve purchased Cheese-Its or Goldfish crackers. That’s not meant to tell you how great of a mom I am for holding out when my kids ask for these at the store. Nope. This is to tell how miserably I failed.

You see, three months ago I decided I was going to try my hand at making gluten free cheese crackers. I told the boys my idea and said we’d stop buying regular crackers and try our homemade ones. Like I said, that was three months ago. Meaning I kept forgetting and not making time to whip these up. My poor kids have been so patient with me!

Not only do I feel sheepish for not following through with my kids, but these honestly take 5 minutes to mix and 12 to bake. So easy!

Do you ever procrastinate something only to realize it was a really simple task? Me too. I totally thought these would be hard to make and take an hour to make from start to finish.

Poke a hole in each cracker before baking.

I’d suggest including the kids on this one too. Each little crackers needs a hole poked in it with a tooth pick. Let them do that part! Baking with littles is so fun every moment is new for them.

I used Monterey Jack cheese and next time I’m going to try a sharp white cheddar.

Why Are My Crackers White Instead Of Yellow?

Good question. Milk makes cheese (duh). Although milk is naturally lightly yellow in nature (due to beta carotene) what you usually see is artificial dye like yellow #5. Some cheeses are colored with annatto, an orange-yellow vegetable dye. I have a hard time finding cheeses without artificial dyes unless I go with white cheese. Do your best to avoid artificial dyes in cheese.
