Homemade Heart and Star Organic Cheese Crackers Recipe

My sister texted me this afternoon and asked what I was doing. I simply replied “oh nothing, making my own crackers.” I love knowing exactly what is in my food, I also love crackers, breads and pasta. I’ve always wanted to make my own crackers so I set out to find a great recipe on how to do it. These crackers are so simple and have 4 simple ingredients.

Of course first I had to actually go to the store for a can of coke so I could make my own mini cookie cutters.I used tape to hold my little cookie cutters together.

The 4 simple ingredients include, cheese, butter, salt and flour. I used all organic ingredients to make my own version.


  • 8 ounces, weight Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Shredded
  • 4 Tablespoons Butter, Cut Into Cubes
  • 1 cup Flour
  • ¾ teaspoons Salt
  • 2 Tablespoons Cold Water


After you’ve added all of your ingredients into your food processor. I used my appliance that is like a food professor. You pulse until the ingredients come together, then you add the water. After it’s all come together you will want to cover it and put it in the fridge for a half an hour.

Then you will take it out and put it on wax paper to roll it out. You will need this dough to be rolled out thin, unless you want a thicker cracker.

Place on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.

    This is a great recipe and I need to bookmark it now! I’m so glad there’s a way to make organic snacks for our kids. What brand of organic flour do you use?

    That’s cool, never thought of making your own crackers at home. Looks so simple and so much healthier. The older kids would have fun cutting out the shapes, by the way I love how crafty you were on making your own cutters. I will have to give this a try. 🙂
