Cheese crackers never looked so good. White cheddar cheese flavors these easy snacks, and a simple paprika oil provides color. Served with the right dip -- like this Red, White and Bleu Cheese Dip -- these are just the right touch for a 4th of July party.

What you'll need

  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups shredded white cheddar cheese
  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
Notes:

Yield: 6-8 servings (2 dozen crackers).
Cost per serving: 35 cents

How to make it

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

  2. Cream together butter and salt. Add shredded cheese and blend well.

  3. Stir in flour with a wooden spoon or hands until a stiff and smooth dough forms.

  4. Roll dough to 1/4 inch thickness and cut with a 2-inch star-shaped cookie cutter, re-rolling dough as needed.

  5. Mix together oil and paprika.

  6. Set crackers on an ungreased baking sheet and brush half of the crackers with the oil. Bake for 8-10 minutes being careful not to overbrown.

  7. Cool completely and store in an airtight container. Eat within 1 week.
