Preparation time: 7 minutes

Cook time: 30 minutes

Yield: 36 crackers

Nonstick cooking spray

1-1/2 cups spiced flax crackers

1-1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese

1/4 cup water

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.

  2. Place the crackers in a food processor and grind them to a fine meal.

  3. Add the cheese and water. Continue to process until the ingredients are well blended and a dough is formed.

  4. Remove the dough and form it into a ball.

  5. Place the dough between two sheets of plastic wrap and roll it out to 1/4-inch thickness.

  6. Transfer the dough to the prepared baking sheet.

  7. Using a knife or pastry wheel, cut the dough into small squares or diamonds; don’t separate or spread the pieces apart.

  8. Bake the dough for 30 minutes, or until the crackers are crisp and the edges are just beginning to brown.

  9. Remove the crackers from the oven and let them set for 3 minutes. Then break or cut the crackers along the lines and remove them to a cooling rack.

To measure the 1-1/2 cups of crackers, break the whole crackers into bits and squish them into a measuring cup.
