Parmesan Crackers Recipe

Parmesan Crackers are great with a cold beer or soda. Once you have started eating them, it is nearly impossible to stop.

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350F.

Step 2

In a large bowl or in the food processor, cut the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add the cheese and egg yolk and mix well.

Step 3

Add enough of the water to form a dough that will hold together in a cohesive ball. The texture will be somewhat crumbly, but the dough will hold together when pressed.

Step 4

Divide the dough into 2 equal portions for rolling. On a floured surface or pastry cloth, roll each into a rectangle about 1/4 inch thick. Cut out individual crackers about 2 inches across with a cookie cutter or sharp knife and arrange them on an ungreased baking sheet.

Step 5

Prick each cracker 2 or 3 times with the tines of a fork. Bake for 10 minutes. Turn the crackers over and bake another 5 to 10 minutes, or until medium brown.

Step 6

Cool the crackers on a rack. Yield: 40-50.
