Have you ever wanted to make your own Cheez-it crackers? It seems like it would be very hard and time consuming.
However that's not true, they can be made very easily and with as few as 3 ingredients.

These wonderfully delicious crackers can also be made Gluten free by substituting gluten free flour for the all-purpose flour and they taste just as good, if not better. They are much healthier than real Cheez-it crackers. You will love these!

Step 1: Ingredients

You only need four ingredients:
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup cubed butter
2-3 tablespoons water

Optional:
1 teaspoon Salt

Preheat oven to 375 degrees fahrenheit.
Grease a large cookie sheet.

Step 2: Add Ingredients to Food Processor

The first thing you'll do is add all the ingredients, except for the water, to the food processor.
You'll now pulse it until it resembles a crumbly mixture.

Step 3: Adding Water

You're going to want to transfer the mixture to a bowl. Add the water 1 tablespoon at a time, while making it into a ball.
It should hold together and not be  too crumbly, if it's still really crumbly add water.

Step 4: Roll Out Dough

Roll the dough out in between two sheets of wax paper until it reaches desired thickness.

Step 5: Cut Out

Cut into 1" by 1" squares, then lay them out on the greased cookie sheet.

Step 6: Bake and Enjoy!

Bake them at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 to 18 minutes. Let them cool for two minutes. 
You are now done enjoy!

    OH. MY. GOODNESS: I just need to write and thank you. I've had this 'ible favorited for quite some time but haven't gotten around to made them until now. I live in Sweden but spent a year in the US and something I really miss from there are crackers and cheez-its was one of my favorits. This recipe really makes them justice and work great as a substituted! Just to bad I burnt mine a little bit. But they are still very edible!

    I like cracers, thanks for recipe

    can you substitute oil for the butter? this looks great! :)

    I haven't tried oil, i'm sure it would work though. Thanks!

    I cup shredded = 4 oz by weight. Correct?
    A related ible calls for 8oz of cheese with the same other ingredients. How would this work out??

    Hmm, would lactose-free cheese work? I've got a chunk in my fridge that hasn't done anything for a while!

    This is so cool havent gotten to make them yet but love to try.
