This recipe was from my aunt, Marilyn Lyman. I was going through her recipes one day & came across this typewritten recipe for Cheezies… they are a homemade cheese kind of cracker ….The image I get when I think of these is having them at a cocktail party, with the men & woman dressed to the nines.. chatting , drinking martinis & having these lovely little cheese crackers ….
The recipe is a bit vague… I tried them 2 different ways. One as it was written on the card.. mixed by hand…they were a bit crumbly& chunky…..so I tried them again using the food processor & they came out more to my liking..the texture was smooth & the cracker was not crumbly’
I took them to the perogy making day I went to & everyone loved them. I actually took the first batch & they were a big hit! So which ever way you make them, I hope you enjoy them.
I have no idea the origin of the recipe of the year it is from, but I think it is an older recipe because one of the ingredients is potato chips!
I would serve them anytime..as part of a cheese board, just as an appetizer, as a snack, with some antipasto…. any way you eat them they are good!
Here is the recipe
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 tsp dry mustard
1/2 cup flour
1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese , loosely packed
1 cup crushed potato chips
Preheat oven to 375f Line a biking sheet with parchment paper
- Cream the butter & dry mustard together. I did this by hand & another time I did this in the bowl of my food processor…your choice
- Add the flour, grated cheese & crushed potato chips Mix well
- If you are using a food processor add the flour, cheese & potato chips to the bowl & pulse until well combined
- Drop onto the baking sheet & flatten with a fork
- Bake for 12 – 15 minutes
THIS IS A PICTURE OF THE 2 I LIKE THE ONES MADE IN THE FOOD PROCESSOR BUT THEY CAN CERTAINLY BE MIXED BY HAND
