"Cheese-Its on crack" is how my friend recently described these amazing crackers. This recipe makes a huge batch, but I promise that you and your friends will quickly eat them all!
1 cup butter, room temperature, chopped
2 cups cheddar cheese, grated
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
2 1/4 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
4 teaspoons lemon juice
1. Place all ingredients in a food processor. Process until mixture comes together and forms a ball. If you don't have a food proce
ssor, use a mixer or handmixer until the ingredients form a ball.
2. Knead the mixture for two minutes. Roll dough into a 4 rolls 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Make each roll the length of a roll of plastic wrap. Wrap in plastic wrap, then foil and freeze for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
3. Remove roll from freezer, let stand 5 minutes. Cut into thin discs, about 1/4 inch wide. Place on baking trays lined with parchment baker. Bake biscuits 10 minutes, until toasted golden. Allow to cool on baking trays. Repeat.
