Homemade Cheese Its

This is one of the easiest recipes I have made and they taste amazing!
I adapted a recipe from http://cupcakesandcashmere.com/homemade-cheez-its-recipe/.

Ingredients:

5 ounces extra sharp cheddar cheese, coarsely shredded
3 ounces buffalo wing cheese (If you don’t like spice, add 3 more ounces of sharp cheddar)
1/2 stick unsalted butter, at room temperature (4 tablespoons)
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons cold water

Directions:

1.Preheat the oven to 375 F. In the bowl add the cheese and butter, mix together with your hands. This can be done with a mixer as well. After this is combined, add the flour and salt. Slowly add the water and mix as the dough forms a ball.

2. Separate the dough in half, refrigerate half and work with the other half. Roll the dough out so it is about 1/8 inch thick. If it is thicker just keep an eye on it in the oven because it will take longer to bake.

3.  Use any cookie cutter available to cut your cheese its into the desired shape. Make a small hole in the middle of each cheese it so that they do not puff up too much. I’ve found that it is best to use a cutter that will make the cheese its about 1inch in diameter. Any bigger and the middle is hard to cook.

4. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes or until puffed and browning at the edges. Flip the cheese its half way though so that both sides become golden. These need to be watched carefully because they will burn quickly.

5. Let them cool and enjoy!
