If your little one is anything like mine, they love Goldfish crackers. While you can buy the baked ones or organic versions, why not make them yourself and really know what is going into them? Plus, you can have fun in the kitchen with your little one and make them into all sorts of different shapes and sizes. We chose hearts since Valentine’s Day is just around the corner.

  • 8 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 4 Tbsp butter, cut into cubes
  • 1 cup flour
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp cold water

Pulse everything except water together in the food processor until the dough resembles coarse sand. Pulse in water, 1 Tbsp at a time. Remove dough from the processor, wrap in plastic, and chill for 20 minutes.

Pre-heat oven to 350 F.

Roll out dough and ct into desired shapes. If you are making goldfish, use a toothpick to make the eyes and smile. Please on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 F for about 15 minutes, or until crispy.

Makes about 7 dozen goldfish crackers.
