Cheddar Jack Cheese Crisps

  • 4 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 4 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, grated
  • 3 ounces Monterey jack cheese, grated

  • 3-4 tablespoons of ice cold water


  1. In a food processor, pulse flour, salt, butter and cheeses until the mixture resembles a coarse meal.

  4. Place chilled dough on a clean surface and roll out a rectangle about 1/8th of an inch thick.
  5. Use a pizza cutter or small knife to cut dough into small squares, or use mini cookie cutters in your kids’ favorite shapes.
  6. Place crisps on cookie sheets lined with parchment paper and chill for an hour before baking.
  7. Bake in a 350°F oven for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
