Like the Spinach Gruyere Crackers, these crackers are delicious and really simple to make. Since Rowan is a little older now, I tried to make a little game for lunch by cutting the crackers into different shapes.
I transformed my slate cheese plate into a mini chalkboard canvas and added the crackers to a simple picture. Older kids could draw the picture themselves. I think this is a fun way to get toddlers learning their shapes while eating a pretty healthy snack.
Cheddar Shapes Whole Wheat Crackers
Print recipe here.
1 1/2 cups of grated cheddar cheese
4 tablespoons butter
3/4 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon tumeric
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine all the ingredients in a food processor and blend unit the mixture firms up into a ball, 2 minutes.
On a lightly floured surface, use a rolling pin and roll out the dough until it is about 1/8 inch thick. Using a knife cut the dough into triangles and squares. I made the circles from the top of my oversized lip balm (I washed it thoroughly), find anything you have that makes a small circle.
Place crackers on an ungreased or parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes until a bit brown. Remove from oven and let cool.
