It’s impossible to only eat one of these buttery, cheesy crackers. With just a bit of garden thyme and loaded with freshly grated asiago cheese, these are sure to be a hit at your next gathering! One of my friends said these are the best crackers he’s ever had.
I originally came up with this recipe for my 101 Dalmatians dinner party because it’s the perfect dough to cut out into shapes for holidays or themed parties! How cute would Christmas trees or stars be for the holidays? So festive!
These crackers are super easy to make but you will want to use a food processor and there’s a bit of chilling time (40 minutes total) so keep that in mind. These are best the first three days so they don’t have a super long shelf life but they’re so irresistible, I have a hard time not gobbling them up the day I make them!
Asiago Thyme Crackers
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbsp fresh thyme leaves
6 oz Asiago cheese (2 cups grated)
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
2-3 Tbsp ice water<
- Place the flour, salt and thyme in a food processor; cover and pulse until blended.
- Grate asiago cheese and add to food processor with softened butter. Cover and pulse until mixture resembles wet sand.
- Add ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time, pulsing after each addition until the dough just holds together when pinched
- Divide dough in half. Shape into two disks; wrap each in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
- Heat oven to 375°F.
- Roll out one disk of dough on a lightly floured surface to 1/8-inch thick. Cut out with a round biscuit cutter or the cookie cutter of your choice. Place 1 inch apart on a baking sheet. Refrigerate on baking sheet for 10 minutes.
- Bake for 12-15 minutes* or until golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack. Cool completely. Repeat with remaining dough. Store crackers in an airtight container for up to three days.
*The exact time will vary depending on the size of your crackers
