Slice & Bake Savoury Icebox Crackers

It’s satisfying to have a stash of something delicious in your freezer, ready to go when an occasion calls for something fresh from the oven. These cheesy crackers are perfect with wine and totally customizable: swap cheeses, nuts and herbs or spices to suit your taste (or use up the bits of cheese in your fridge). Try 1/2 tsp cumin seed or fennel seed or 1/4 tsp smoked paprika in place of the fresh herbs.

Total Time:

30mins

Cook:

12mins

Skill Level:

Easy

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup finely chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
  • 2 tsp. chopped fresh rosemary, thyme or sage (optional)
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ¼ cup butter, chopped into pieces
  • ¼-½ cup grated aged cheddar, Parmesan, Gruyère or other flavourful cheese
  • ¼ cup half & half or milk

How to Make It

1.

In the bowl of a food processor, combine the flour, nuts, herbs or spices and salt; pulse to combine.

2.

Add the butter and cheese and pulse until well blended and crumbly.

3.

Add the cream or milk and pulse just until the dough comes together in a ball.

4.

Shape the dough into a log, wrap in parchment or plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm (or for up to a week) or freeze for up to 6 months.

5,

When you’re ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350°F.

6,

Slice the dough 1/8-inch thick (if it’s frozen it will need to stand at room temperature for a bit to make it easier to slice) and place on an ungreased or parchment-lined baking sheet.

7.

Bake for 10-12 minutes, until pale golden around the edges. Makes about 2 dozen crackers.
