Deer Creek Aged Cheddar Herbed Christmas Crackers

makes approximately 36 crackers

What You’ll Need:

  • 1 1/2 c flour
  • 1/2 c butter, cubed
  • 2 c Deer Creek 3 Year Reserve (for a rich & bold flavor)Β  or 5 Year Private Reserve (for a sharp & savory flavor), shredded
  • 2 t dried savory
  • 1 T water
  • freshly ground sea salt and black pepper

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a food processor, combine the flour, butter, cheese, and savory. Pulse or mix until a dough forms, adding the water as needed.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough and cut into desired shapes. We used a variety of Christmas cookie cutters for a fun holiday look.
  4. Transfer the cutouts onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Sprinkle each cracker lightly with the freshly ground sea salt and coarsely ground black pepper. Using your finger tips, gently press the salt and pepper into the crackers,
  5. Bake for 10 – 12 minutes until lightly golden brown. Carefully transfer the crackers onto a wire rack to cool.
