15 Mar Monday Munchies: Spicy Cheese Crackers
These little crackers are so much better than the ones sold in the supermarket! Bright orange cheesy crackers with the zip of Texas Pepper Jelly products are awesome by themselves and awesomer still when you dip them into, well, your choice of dip!
They’re easy to make, too. Plus, they are one of those little snacks that people not in the know think you labored over for HOURS!
1 stick margarine (Don’t use butter.)
2 cups grated extra-sharp cheese (DO NOT use Velveeta or any soft cheese!)
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup Texas Habanero Salsa
What to do:
In a large bowl, mix all of the ingredients together. Use your hands. When you’ve mixed everything together really, really well, roll the dough in a long roll and wrap it tightly in waxed paper. Chill overnight.
The next day, unwrap the dough and slice very thin, or, you can roll out the dough and use a pizza cutter to trace out your crackers. If you’re feeling really ambitious, or have small children, go ahead and use your cookie cutters. Place on ungreased baking sheet, and poke several holes, with a toothpick or fork, in each cracker.
Bake in a 350 oven for approximately 12 minutes. Ovens differ, so after ten minutes, open the door and check every few minutes.
Let crackers cool before eating. They should be crisp.
Set out the dips. It’s wise to sample a cracker with each dip, yourself, before telling your family or guests they’re ready to eat. I’m just sayin’.
