What is wrong with me? I’ve hardly been posting sugary treats for a whole two days.
I think this is what’s called a quarter-life crisis.
So you know how yesterday I told you guys about that awesome bean dip? And I said to eat it with anything you like? Well, other than green beans I’ve been consuming mass quantities of the dip with crackers of the homemade variety. Of the homemade and super cheesy variety. Get ready to have your mind blown by simplicity!
SHARP CHEDDAR CRACKERS (based on this recipe from Ina Garten)
- 1 stick of butter, softened
- 4 oz sharp white cheddar, grated
- 1 1/4 cups of flour (add 2 Tbsp if you’re at higher altitude)
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp onion powder
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
With a hand mixer beat the butter until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the flour, salt, onion powder, black pepper, and mix til just combined. Fold in the cheddar cheese. Spread a sheet of plastic wrap on the counter and dump the mixture into the middle of it. Form a log (about 1.5 inches in diameter) and wrap the plastic around it. Refrigerate for 30-45 minutes. Preheat the oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with a Silpat or parchment paper. When the log is very cold and hardened, pull it out. Slice the crackers 1/4-inch thick and place on the baking sheet. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes until golden brown. Let cool completely before eating with dip.
Just right for what, you ask?
Just right for breakfast, lunch, and dinner forever and ever AMEN.
