Ingredients

1 1/2 cups sharp white Cheddar, grated

1/2 cup all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting

1/2 cup whole-wheat flour

2 teaspoons paprika

1/4 teaspoon onion powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup cold unsalted butter, cubed

3 to 4 tablespoons milk

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. 
  2. Combine the Cheddar, flours, paprika, onion powder and salt in a food processor. Add the butter and pulse until coarse crumbs form. Add the milk and pulse until the dough forms into a ball. 
  3. Form the dough into 1 disk. Cover in plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 30 minutes. 
  4. Roll the dough out 1/8-inch thick on a lightly-floured surface using a lightly-floured rolling pin. Form shapes with a cookie cutter, dipping it in flour from time to time to ensure a clean cut. Gently transfer the crackers to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake the crackers on the middle rack of the oven until they are barely browned at the edges, about 8 minutes. 
  5. Remove from the oven and set onto a rack to cool.
