ready to take on the go!
The whole process was actually quite fun. I enjoyed using a pizza cutter to make the small squares. A silicone mat is the way to go; you can roll the dough, cut the squares and bake all on the same space. Watching the crackers cook and slightly puff up in the oven was a highlight. I am so glad that I can make my own cheese crackers now; quality ingredients and no need to read allergy-warning on package! There is no question that I will be baking more of these in the future; but, will I really be making these delicious cheese crackers for my toddler? I guess we will learn how to share together.
I found the recipe on http://www.fixmeasnack.com/. I will be going to this blog for other new snack ideas. For the original recipe and instructions, click here: Cheese Crackers-- I couldn't do a better job mapping out the process.
Some changes: besides using my Thermomix instead of a standard food processor, I used white cheddar cheese instead of orange.

Cutting dough with pizza cutter, I was so excited that I couldn't seem to make straight lines!:

With motor running at speed 1, add water and mix for 30 seconds until dough starts to clump up or form into a ball. Picture of what mixture looks like:
