Whole Wheat Cheese Crackers with Chives and Mustard

Labels: { , }

These delicious crackers are indulgently buttery, cheesy, flaky and practically melt in your mouth. A mix of sharp Cheddar and Grana Padano was used here, but if you can't get enough sharp-tasting cheese, then substitute Grana Padano with vintage Cheddar.

Whole Wheat Cheese Crackers with Chives and Mustard

adapted from Taste
  • 150 g Wholewheat flour
  • 150 g All purpose flour
  • 250 g Chilled butter, cut into smaller pieces
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 60 g Sharp Cheddar, grated
  • 60 g Grana Padano, grated
  • 3 tbsp Fresh chives, chopped
  1. Whisk and sift together the wholewheat flour and all purpose flour in a mixing bowl. Set aside. Line two baking trays with parchment papers.
  2. Beat chopped butter and mustard in a bowl until combined and creamy. Stir in the flour mixture, grated Cheddar, Grana Padano, and chives. Turn onto a lightly floured work surface. Use your hands to bring the dough together.
  3. Divide the dough into two equal portions. Roll out 1 portion onto a lightly floured work surface until about 5mm thick. Use a wave or flower 5cm-diamenter cookie cutter to cut cookies from the dough. Place on the prepared trays. Place them in the fridge for 15 minutes to chill.
  4. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Bake the cookies, swapping trays halfway through cooking, for 18-20 minutes or until golden. Set aside on the trays for 5 minutes to cool before transferring to a wire rack. Repeat with the remaining dough portion. Store the crackers in an airtight container for up to 1 week.

What beautiful crackers Angie. I'm not familiar with Grana Padano. I'm going directly to my cheese book after I write this. I'm in love with sharp cheddar, so I know these will be wonderful.
