Homemade Cheez-Its

Mary Hutchinson


These are one of my favorite go to snacks. They are great for kids who want a quick snack after a day of swimming, or wanting on a hot dog at a cookout. Either way they will truly be a favorite.

If you love tomato soup these are great as a topping.

How to Make Homemade Cheez-Its


  • 1In a food processor, pulse everything except water together until it looks like course crumbs
  • 2While pulsing, add in water, 1 tablespoon at a time
  • 3Remove from food processor, wrap in plastic wrap and put in refrigerator for at least 20 minutes
  • 4Meanwhile preheat oven 350 degrees
  • 5Roll out dough (quite thin) and cut into squares. Use a toothpick or the end of scissors to poke a hole in center of each cracker
  • 6Place crackers on lined baking sheet (Silpat and parachement paper - both are fine). Can place fairly close together, as they do not really expand. Bake for 13 - 15 minutes or until crispy
