Homemade Cheese Cracker(Cheez-its) Recipe

These cheese crackers are incredible!!!! I think that they taste better then cheez-its!

1 1/2 cups grated extra-sharp cheddar cheese
4 tablespoons unsalted butter (i used margarine because we didn't have butter and they came out fine)
3/4 cup flour, plus extra for dusting
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes(if you don't like spicy I suggest cutting it in half or not putting it in at all)
1 tablespoon milk

First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Put everything except the milk into a food processor. I didn't have one so i used a blender which worked just as well. Pulse it for about 5 seconds for 5 or 6 times, until the dough is coarse crumbs.

Add the milk and pulse until the dough forms a ball.

On a floured surface, roll out the dough until it is about an 1/8 of an inch thick. Cut the dough into 1-inch squares using a sharp knife or a pizza cutter. Put a little bit of flour onto the blade so that it doesn't stick to the dough.

Use a toothpick or the flat end of a skewer and poke a hole in the center of each square.
Place the crackers about 1/4 inch apart on parchment paper on a baking sheet.

Bake them for about 12-15 minutes until the edges start to brown.

You can store them in a covered container to eat within a day or two.
