Cheddar Cheese Christmas Crackers

"I wanted to make some cheese crackers to go on my Christmas tray for a diabetic friend. Most recipes call for a block of natural cheddar cheese. I live 12 miles from a grocery store and the wind chill is currently 12 below zero so I decided to "make do" with the 8 ounces of shredded, processed cheddar I had in the freezer. Naturally aged cheddar would probably give you a little more cheesy flavor. This recipe results in crackers somewhat like goldfish but with more "zing". I used my smallest cookie cutters (about 1") for fun Christmas shapes."

  2. In food processor, process frozen cheese to a small shred.
  3. In mixer bowl, cream butter, cheese and Worcestershire sauce until well blended.

  5. Divide dough into 2 balls, wrapping one in plastic and refrigerating while you work with the other one.
  6. Flatten dough and roll to 1/4" thick and cut shapes with small cookie cutters. Keep re-rolling and cutting until all dough is used. Sprinkle some shapes with toasted sesame seeds as you prefer.
