Making keto cheese crackers
These keto cheese crackers are so easy to make! Cream the butter and cream cheese together and mix in the pepper jack cheese. The rest of cast of characters goes into the bowl…almond four, coconut flour and some seasonings to make these babies pop! Onion powder, garlic powder and cumin are so yummy paired with the pepper jack…thank you Fiesta Brand Seasonings!!
To add a little crunch and rich, nutty flavor, I added in some chopped pecans. This combination reminds me of a cheese crisp I vaguely remember from my childhood, very similar to a cheese straw! Crisp, light, almost like a cheesy shortbread meets a cheez-it!
If you want a spicier cracker, you can use habanero jack, a spicier pepper jack or even add some cayenne!
The dough goes into some plastic wrap and gets formed into a log, just like refrigerator or slice and bake cookies, and into the fridge it goes. At this point, the cracker dough can sit in the fridge until baking or could even be frozen.
When ready to bake, the cracker dough gets sliced into rounds about ¼ inch thick and baked off! These babies bake at 300 or until golden…if you take them out to early they will not be crisp all the way through so be patient!
Let the crackers cool completely on the sheet pan before removing them!
These Keto Cheese Crackers are a so addictive and delicious!! The girls polished off a whole batch in no time!! Perfect to serve up in an appetizer spread for the holidays or to have on hand for snacking or packing in lunches these crackers are a must try!
