When I saw this week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe (Cheez-it-ish crackers, p 10), I actually had to Google what a “Cheez-it” was. Ok, then, it’s like a version of a Goldfish cracker. Though Dorie’s book shows a picture where they look a little more shortbread-y than cracker-y….
I baked these on a day when I needed some quiet time in the kitchen. They took no time to whip up. The dough came together quickly and sat in the fridge for an hour or so. I *only* have a star shaped cookie cutter (I know, what’s wrong with me?) but felt these were pretty and festive in star-shapes.
I used an Emmenthal cheese in this but feel they could have benefited from something a little sharper – like a Cheddar. Next time, I’ll do that. These are also much smaller than Dorie’s suggested size – so, think bite sized like Goldfish.
Have to say I was super impressed with this recipe – it’s one of those things that you can serve at a gathering and then casually mention that you made them. It’s a fact that’s bound to impress your guests! And hey, noone has to know just how easy it really is!
Pretty. Tasty. You can’t really go wrong.
