  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Lightly grease a large cookie sheet.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, salt and cayenne pepper. Stir in the Cheddar cheese and melted butter to form a firm dough. Roll pieces of dough into ropes as big around as a penny. Slice into 1/4 inch slices. If dough is too soft, it can be chilled until firm. Place slices onto the prepared cookie sheet so they are 1 inch apart.
  3. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until the bottoms of the pennies are lightly toasted and the tops are firm. Allow to cool completely before serving. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.

Years ago when I pregnant with my youngest daughter, my doctor had just informed me that I had yet another "toes first" baby and that I was going to have a scheduled C-section again. With that, ...

Very good!! Not what I expected though, these are not like crackers you purchase in the store. I used my hands to knead the dough so it would form a ball. I made mine the size of 50-cent pieces ...

These pennies are good. Mine were pretty crumbly but had a big cheese taste. My son didn't care for them, but that was a while back. Maybe I'll give them another try in the future...see if he...

Very crumbly. There was no way that these were going to roll into logs. I rolled them in hand and pressed them into rounds. I didn't see any need to grease a baking sheet, as these are heavy ...

This is a GREAT recipe. I am a 12 year old girl, and for me it was so easy and fast! For my dad's birthday i made it as a starter than i followed it by a main course and a desert!! My dad and my...

I'm a grown up but I thought this was a fun recipe to make and tasted good to eat. I would suggest that for older kids and adults you might want to increase the salt and cayenne pepper a bit or...

After reading the reviews, I made my own version of these crackers. They turned out very well- a little spicy, and nice and cheesy. Here's what I did: Blend 1 cup all purpose flour, 1/4 t garl...
