We don’t  eat crisps very often at home. We do have some when there is a special occasion, as in a special visit, a birthday, Christmas, etc. And of course the kids get them on birthday parties. A few weeks ago, my son had a bag of the famous little cheesy crackers in an orange package and he had enjoyed them so much he did ask the question again:

My son:  ‘Please mummy can you buy some of these some time??’
Me:          ‘You know the answer my dear, as soon as we have a party again, then I can get you some.’
My son:  ‘Ok then, mummy’, moaning only a little bit

2 seconds later:

My son:  ‘Mummy, mummy, I know, maybe we can make some….’
Me:          ‘Well, actually, hmm, maybe, yes, that sounds like a great plan!’

I loved his way of thinking. He knows me, he sees me baking all the time and he knows I think it is better for them when food is homemade.  He knew there was a good chance he could convince me asking for it in that way.  So, that is what we did and he got his way.  He kept the wrapper and waited until I found the time to make them. I found a recipe on another blog, which I adapted slightly and my youngest son helped me made them. We had a terrific time making them, he is really getting into baking now.

Result, yes, we did it! We all loved them! They are as cheesy and crispy as the original, but a lot healthier as they have no preservatives, much less fat and are made of wholemeal flour, so have more fibre in them as well. It is still a treat and still a bit fat due to the cheese, but nevertheless, much better than the industrial made ones. It makes a good snack when we deserve a treat or a fantastic appetiser as well.

They are pretty easy to make, it just takes a some time because of the tiny size of the biscuits. That is why you should definitely ask some help from the kids this time.

I hope you will enjoy these as much as we do! Please do let me know how you get on with these lovely crackers!

Prep: Cook: Total:

You'll Need...

  • 200 gram wholemeal flour
  • 50 gram matured cheddar
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 1 tbsp rapeseed oil
  • 2 tbsp parmesan
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • cooking spray

Directions

  1. Bring all the dry ingredients together in a bowl and mix in the water, bit by bit. Until you get a firm dough that is not too sticky.
  2. Roll the dough out until you have a really thin layer (about 2 mm).
  3. Cut out the shape of your choice, we should some mini shapes from the play dough.  The circles are about 2.5 cm diameter.
  4. Place the biscuits on a tray lined with baking paper.
  5. Prick the biscuits a few times with a tooth pricker, to prevent them rising too much in the oven.
  6. Spread a little bit extra parmesan over the individual biscuits and finally spray them with some cooking spray. Just to give them a little bit of shine.
  7. Bake the biscuit on 180 °C during 20 minutes.
  8. If the parmesan hasn't melted nicely, or you think they need a little bit of extra browning, you can place them under the grill for a very short time. Don't loose them out of sight. I only had them under the grill for about 20 seconds, but that depends on how hot your grill gets.
