DIY Cheese its


So here’s a little confession, I’m obsessed with cheese and I casually have a love affair with cheez-its. Now these crackers are pretty delicious, but I tried making my own and they were so much better. Not to mention they got a lot of love from my friends. I found the recipe online, but of course, I tweaked it! They were so delicious, I honestly have nothing more to say except that if you love cheese than you’re going to love these! They’re thicker than actual cheez-its, so they’re pretty hearty and they have just the right amount of cheesiness. Some of my friends liked them better than the actual thing!

So let’s get started!


-8 oz cheddar cheese
-4 tbsp unsalted butter
-1/2 cup and 2 tbsp flour
-2 tbsp cornstarch
-a few pinches of salt, pepper and paprika


  1. Cream the butter.
  2. Add in the cheese and seasonings and mix to combine.
  3. Add in the flour and cornstarch and knead until it forms a nice uniform dough.
  4. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and let chill in the refrigerator for at least 10 minutes.
  5. Preheat the oven to 375 F
  6. On a floured surface, roll out the dough until it’s about 1/8 inch thick.
  7. Take a ruler and a pizza cutter (you can use a knife, but I found a pizza cutter is much easier) and cut uniform squares.
  8. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 10 to 18 minutes.

And that’s it! I’m dying to try these crackers with other cheeses such as a mix of parmesan, gruyere, swiss or mozzarella. I’ll let you know how it goes 🙂

Hugs and puppies!
