Seriously, who has time to make homemade crackers?!? Trust me when we say, we hear you. BUT – There’s something just wonderfully simple about these little gluten-free crackers.
You just throw a few ingredients in the food processor, roll them out, cut them (heck, let your kids do that part) and bake them. Done! And they’re so buttery and tasty you’ll wish you had made a bigger batch.
These gluten-free crackers are adapted from a homemade goldfish cracker recipe from Tasty Kitchen. While trying to eat a little healthier this year, we’ve (mostly) taken white flour out of our die. We chose garbanzo bean flour to give the crackers a little more heft, along with a faintly nutty flavor.
We loved the result – and they make great treats for Valentine’s Day. Oh, and we know how the time goes. If you don’t get around to making them before Valentine’s Day, just cut them into shamrocks for your no-food-coloring St. Patrick’s Day!
Gluten-Free Cheddar Heart Crackers
Gluten-Free Cheese Crackers
These delicious gluten-free cheese crackers are made with cheddar cheese and cut into adorable heart shapes. Adapted from a Tasty Kitchen recipe.
- 8 ounces ounces shredded cheddar cheese
- 4 tbsp butter, cut into cubes
- 1 cup garbanzo bean flour
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 2 tbsp cold water
- kosher salt for sprinkling on top (optional)
Combine the cheese, butter, flour, and salt in the food processor; pulse until the mixture begins to clump together. Add the water slowly and continue processing until the dough forms into a ball. Remove the dough from the food processor, wrap in plastic, and chill for 20 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Remove the dough from the refrigerator and roll out onto a lightly floured board. The thinner you can roll the dough (approx. 1/8th of an inch), the better. Cut into shapes as desired. Place crackers on a parchment-paper-lined baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes or until light golden brown and bubbly. After they are cool, serve them or store them in a tightly sealed container. Makes approximately 2 dozen, depending on the size of your cookie cutter.
These buttery, flaky treats are a real crowd-pleaser. And they’re not just made for a select few. Since they’re gluten free, just about anyone can enjoy them.
