Ingredients

  • 1/2

    teaspoon vegetable oil

  • 2

    tablespoons unsalted butter at room temperature

  • 3/4

    cup lightly packed shredded sharp Cheddar cheese

  • 1/3

    cup lightly packed freshly shredded Parmesan cheese

  • 1/2

    teaspoon paprika

  • 1

    pinch cayenne pepper, or to taste

  • 1/4

    teaspoon salt

  • 1/2

    cup all-purpose flour

  • 1

    tablespoon cold water, or as needed

Directions

1.Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and lightly grease with vegetable oil. 2.Place butter into a mixing bowl; add Cheddar cheese, Parmesan cheese, paprika, cayenne pepper, and salt. Mix together with the back of a spatula until thoroughly combined. 3.Mix flour into cheese mixture with a fork until crumbly. Sprinkle in cold water, 1 or 2 drops at a time, and mix with spatula until it comes together in a dough that holds its shape when squeezed. 4.Transfer dough to a work surface and press into a thick, flattened disk. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate 30 minutes. 5.Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). 6.Roll dough out on a floured work surface to about 1/8-inch thick. Use a pizza cutter to cut 1-inch wide strips from the dough. Cut strips crosswise into rectangles about 1 1/2-inches long. Use the back of a bamboo skewer to punch 5 small holes into each cracker. Arrange crackers onto prepared baking sheet. 7.Bake in the preheated oven until crackers are browned and crisp, about 15 minutes. Let stand about 3 minutes for crackers to cool and release from the foil. Let cool completely before serving.
