Introduction: Homemade Cheez-Its/Cheese Crisps
In this Instructable, I will show you how to make homemade Cheez-Its. I saw these being made on TikTok and thought they were fun so for those of you who haven't seen it, here you go. These cheez-its aren't like the storebought kind they are more of cheese crisps. They do taste kind of like them. They are Keto-friendly and gluten-free. If you love cheese give these a try, such an awesome Keto and gluten-free snack. If I can do it, you can do it. Let's get baking!
Don't forget to follow me and check out my other Instructables. :)
Follow the super easy steps below or watch the short video tutorial or do both. :)
Step 1: Ingredients and Tools
- Cheese - Use Cheddar or a cheddar jack blend. Blocks or the pre-sliced sandwich size.
- Pinch of salt
- Sheet pan
- Parchment paper
- Knife - I love using my cheese knife.
Step 2: Cut the Cheese
Preheat the oven to 275F/135C.
Cut the cheese into little squares. Some people take the sandwich-sized slices of cheese and cut those into fourths. Those are nice because they are already the perfect thickness, which is right around 1/8th of an inch or so.
You can make them 2x2 inches or 1x1 inches. They won't keep their square shape, however.
Step 3: Poke Holes?
Now line a sheet pan with parchment paper and place the cheese squares about an inch and a half apart.
Poke holes if you want in the middle with a straw. But, honestly, that doesn't matter as the cheese melts the hole gets filled in anyways, haha. But it looks cool before baking.
Next, sprinkle on a tiny bit of salt. Or you can leave the salt off entirely.
Step 4: Bake and Eat
Now, bake the cheese in the oven, middle rack, for 20 to 25 minutes until it melts and gets a little brown around the edges.
Pull them out of the oven and let them cool for about 5 minutes before eating them. They are nice and crunchy and taste very similar to cheez-its!
