TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + chilling Bake: 15 min./batch YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dill weed
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 2 tablespoons water

Directions

  • 1. Place the first six ingredients in a food processor; cover and pulse to blend. Add butter; cover and pulse until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. While processing, gradually add water just until moist crumbs form.
  • 2. Shape dough into a disk; wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes or until easy to handle.
  • 3. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to 1/8-in. thickness. Cut with a floured 2-in. cookie cutter. Place 1 in. apart on parchment paper-lined baking sheets.
  • 4. Bake at 350° for 12-15 minutes or until edges are lightly browned (crackers should be crisp). Remove to wire racks to cool completely. Store in an airtight container. Yield: about 3 dozen.
