ABC - Easy Peasy Cheesy Cookies

This June challenge for ABC was something I've always wanted to try: savory crackers. Although the recipe is called Cheesy Cookies on the Weekend Bakery blog, they're really crackers in my book. The dough comes together really quickly in the food processor (yes, "easy peasy" indeed).

I added some interesting spices to kick things up. Instead of rolling out the dough and using a cookie cutter, I went a different route (it was also VERY hot in my kitchen as the AC was out of service). Inspired by these tiny savory Moroccan crackers called "Petite Fekkas Sale", I decided to shape them like that instead. They baked up in less time also which was a plus (remember, no AC!).

I made half the recipe so it doesn't look like much :)

Some step-by-step pictures:

Getting the ingredients ready for the food processor

Shape the dough into a snake and use your bench knife to cut diagonal pieces

Ready for the oven (I like to reuse my parchment paper, as you can tell)

Voila! Bon Appetit :)

Final thoughts/tips:

  • Hubby loved these little nuggets, and gave them a 9 out of 10 rating (score!).
  • I loved them too. The cayenne gives them a nice kick, and the other spices makes far from boring. I loved crunch and the buttery flavor which came through really well.
  • I added a pinch of the following ingredients to the recipe:
    • Cayenne pepper
    • Black pepper (freshly ground)
    • Sweet paprika
    • Garlic powder
  • Another idea:
    • When they're "nugget-size", you can create something like a Chex Mix by adding almonds, pretzels, and yummies :)
  • The original recipe can be found here.
