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


  1. In a food processor, pulse everything except water together until it looks like course crumbs
  2. While pulsing, add in water, 1 tablespoon at a time
  3. Remove from food processor, wrap in plastic wrap and put in refrigerator for at least 20 minutes
  4. Meanwhile preheat oven 350 degrees
  5. Roll 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
  6. Place 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
