Cheddar Cheese Crackers

cheddar cheese crackerHappy October 1st! I can’t believe it is already October. In celebration of the month of Halloween, I made these pumpkin-shaped cheddar cheese crackers. The husband calls them “cheese cookies” because they look more like cookies than crackers. I guess I could have rolled the dough thinner to make them look more like cheddar cheese crackers, but I also like their plumpness. You can get creative with the shapes you want for your cheese crackers. These pumpkin-shaped crackers make a fun appetizer recipe for a Halloween party, and they go really well with soup! I found a recipe for cheddar crackers on the Wilton website, and I have to admit I was worried about using Worcestershire sauce in my crackers (isn’t that for meat?!), but I loved how they came out – super flavorful and cheddar cheesy!

What did everyone do this weekend? I went out in North Beach for the first time, and it was a lot of fun. I also saw Looper, which was pretty good! I am usually not a fan of “shoot ’em up” movies, but this one had some great twists and an interesting story.

OK, back to these cute pumpkin cheddar crackers…

    How cute are those?! I would use my food processor to grate the cheese, since I recently lost a battle with a grater… I’ll have to keep these in mind for soup sometime!

    Good stuff! I make cheese straws that are similar. I like the inclusion of Worcestershire sauce in your recipe – I’ll have to try that. Thanks for this.
