My hubby and I do not have kids but we do not let that stop us from occasionally snacking on goldfish crackers. Sometimes those “snacks” turn into eating an entire bag for dinner. So when I saw this recipe for homemade goldfish on Smitten Kitchen’s blog I knew I had to try them. My hubby actually surprised me with them one night after I got home late from work. We made another batch a few days later. These are just as addicting as the store bought crackers if not more so. Make some today for a snack- or your dinner- I won’t tell!
6 ounces (1 1/2 cups coarsely grated) sharp cheddar
4 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon onion powder
1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon table salt
Using a food processor mix all ingredients until the dough forms a ball, about two minutes. Smitten Kitchen recommends chilling the dough if it is really warm to make it easier to roll out. Being winter in Chicago I did not have an issue with the dough.
Lightly flour a surface and rolling pin and roll out dough to 1/8-inch thick. Cut out shapes with small cookie cutter. I used a small circle but you could use any shape. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes for until lightly brown on edges. Place on cooling rack to cool or eat immediately like we did!
