cheez-it-ish crackers: French Fridays with Dorie

Fresh out of the oven cheez-it-ish crackers....
and voila, I'm back!

Somewhere between Whole Wheat Loaves and these happened...And then I found myself looking for a cauliflower soup recipe and saw that the doristas had recently tackled the one in Around My French Table.  Well, hello....and like magic I was pulled back in!

Really good butter and yummy gruyere cheese:  how could these crackers not be good?

Mixing the butter and cheese with the salt and peppers, 
curd-like appearance was a very good description.

The dough ready to go into the refrigerator for the 1 hour of chilling.

Another great recipe (especially with a glass of wine!) from Dorie Greenspan's Around My French Table.  

I will say that my first batch (pictured above) came out really well; my second batch cooked a few minutes too long and had a slightly bitter taste.  So note to file:  watch closely at end of baking to make sure crackers only lightly brown around edges and on part of top. 

To see what others did with this recipe this week, you can visit French Fridays with Dorie.

Happy Holidays to all!
