Homemade Goldfish Crackers



My son is obsessed with cheese crackers.  I mean obsessed.  He could probably live on Goldfish, Cheese Nips, Whales....all of them!  So when I saw Katrina make Homemade Cheese Nips, I was in awe!  I knew I had to do it.  But I don't have the cute pastry cutter she has, so I had to do something else.  Then I saw Miss Anthropist's Kitchen made her own goldfish cracker cutter!  I was all over this!



This recipe is SUPER easy!  I told a friend I was making these, and she laughed at me.  She said please tell me you are joking, and that is just code for you didn't make anything that today. Nope, I made them, and they are easy.  Ok, I will admit the goldfish part gets kind of annoying.  I made a tiny cutter, so it just was time consuming.  But if you cut them in squares like Cheese Nips, you would be done in no time!  With the last bit of dough I got out our new Star Wars Sandwich Cutter and made a giant Tie Fighter and Millennium Falcon! So if you have kids, go make these!!!  My husband has eaten his fair share, so even if you don't have kids try it!

Homemade Goldfish Crackers
Adapted from In Katrina's Kitchen
Printable Recipe

1 cup Flour
4 Tbls Butter, cut into small pieces
8 ounces Sharp Cheddar Cheese, grated
3/4 tsp Salt
2 Tbls cold water


Pulse everything together in the food processor until it resembles coarse sand.



Pulse in water, 1 tablespoon at a time.



Remove, wrap in plastic, and chill for 20 minute.



Roll out dough, and cut into desired shape. You can use a toothpick to make the eyes and smile if desired.  Place on lined cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes, or until crispy.

These goldfish crackers are SUPER CUTE!!! Looks so puffy and crunchy and texture of crackers seem perfect. I'm afraid I can finish eating this whole batch in one day (or half day actually...).

They would not be the same without that eye and smile, these look so perfect. I love making homemade goodness out of store-bought favorites, awesome!

This is the cutest thing ever! God bless you for having so much patience. I don't think I could bear cutting out the tiny fish -- more like cut the slab of dough in 4 and bake. LOL

How cute are those crackers? My kids would love them.

How cute are these!? I have to try them.. goldfish are one of my weaknesses!

Adorable! I think I might have to forego the tiny goldfish cutter, though and give myself an easier time of it!

So cute! I don't think I am patient enough to do the itty bitty crackers but I can see doing the big ones. Yum!

These are darling! I think we all have friends who don't understand the foodie drive :)

I saw Katrina's blog and am making these for my father - he's goldfish/cheese nip crazy, too! He's going to be 81 this winter, so what do you get a guy who has everything and needs nothing? The fish are adorable!

I'm scared that if I made these I won't have the will power to stop eating lol

What's with the goldfish? I love the orangey colour they remind me of Wotsits (it's a British thing). I'm strangely drawn!

What an awesome idea! Of all the baking I've ever done...I've yet to make crackers of any kind! These look better than the real thing. And I love that you made your own cookie...or cracker...cutter! : )

How fun Erin, I bet the kids and adult kids devoured these. I love the homemade cutter, great idea. I love crackers too, probably my favorite snack. Hope you have a great week.

Creativity award, plus bonus for Star Wars ships. I just saw a show in TV that had the goldfish cracker factory. Very interesting. I would try to sell that Millenium Falcon idea to them. You could be on to something...

Only one person said anything about how they actually tasted. Thank you for being helpful, Sheri.

Question: how thin do you roll the dough?
Making these right now. So far they've been super easy. Can't wait to taste them. Thanks for the recipe.

 
At September 22, 2011 at 3:18 PM , Blogger Erin said...

You roll them about 1/4 in thick. They do puff up when you bake them, so you can kind of roll however thing you want. Just know they puff some.

These are ingenious. We can't get these in the UK - but I'm going to try and make some using your recipe. I love them!
