Cheese Blue Cornmeal Crackers Recipe

Cheese Blue Cornmeal Crackers Recipe

I found this recipe in an old whole-grain cookbook and changed it to suit our tastes, adding various spices and sesame seeds and replacing the salt and pepper. Now it's a family favorite, and I'm always asked for "my versions"!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + chilling Bake: 20 min. YIELD:42 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup fat-free milk

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 cup old-fashioned whole oats
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup blue cornmeal

  • 1. In bowl, beat the cheeses, butter, milk, pepper, garlic powder and paprika. Stir in the oats, flour, cornmeal and sesame seeds. Shape dough into a 12-in. roll; wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.
