"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."
