Cheddar Goldfish Crackers with Peanut Butter Spread
From Country Living
Our flaky cheddar crackers are delicious, but if you want to save time, make the peanut-butter spread only (step 2). Skip the crackers and serve with chilled celery sticks and store-bought cheese crackers.
- 1 cup(s) all-purpose flour
- 4 tablespoon(s) cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
- 8 ounce(s) grated extra-sharp Cheddar cheese
- 3/4 teaspoon(s) salt
- 1/2 teaspoon(s) fresh-ground pepper
- 1/2 cup(s) peanut butter
- 1 tablespoon(s) honey
- 1/8 teaspoon(s) cayenne pepper, optional
Cooking time 20mins

1.Make the dough: Pulse the flour, butter, cheese, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pepper together using a food processor until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Pulse in 3 to 4 tablespoons of water, 1 tablespoon at a time, and only enough so that the dough forms a ball and rides the blade. Remove, wrap in plastic, and chill for 20 minutes or up to 24 hours.
2.Make the spread: Stir the peanut butter, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, and honey together until smooth. If desired, stir in the cayenne pepper for extra heat. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside until ready to serve.
3.Bake the crackers: Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 baking pans with parchment paper and set aside. Roll the dough out to 1/8th-inch thickness. Cut out as many crackers as possible using a 2-inch fish-shaped cutter. Place them 1 inch apart on the prepared baking pans. Bake until golden and crisp — 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Repeat with remaining dough and scraps. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week. Serve with peanut butter spread.
