I am seriously going crackers – Cheddar Cheese Spritz crackers that is!
After rolling out and decorating dozens of cookies, I decided to purchase a cookie press. I had one when I was a teenager, and it was problematic to use. I was a little hesitant to get another one, but I watched the video on the Wilton site, I decided to give it a go.
There are some great recipes to go along with the cookie press, and I decided to make the Cheddar Crackers.
- 1 pound natural cheddar (not processed) sharp cheddar or aged Swiss cheese , finely shre
- 1/2 cup butter softened
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- dash Hot pepper sauce
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1/8 teaspoon Dry mustard
- 1/4 teaspoon Onion powder
*Do not use pre-shredded cheese.
Preheat oven to 375?F. In a medium bowl, cream cheese, butter, Worcestershire sauce and hot red pepper sauce until smooth. In separate bowl, mix flour and seasonings together. Gradually add to cheese mixture. Mix until dough forms smooth ball. Shape dough into small logs and place in Cookie Master Plus. Using desired disk, press shapes onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Cool 2 minutes on cookie sheet on cooling rack. Remove from sheet and continue to cool on rack.
