And another sheet of parchment on top Roll it until it is quite thin I like Mine I try to get about an eighth of an Inch thick or even a little bit less but Aim for it to be even once it's rolled Out cut your dough into one inch or so Squares I used a ruler to help score the Dough so I had an idea of where to cut These weren't exactly one inch but close Enough you could also just eyeball it go For it you know I used a pastry wheel Because I thought it was adorable but You could also use a pizza cutter or a Knife transfer those little squares onto A baking sheet with parchment and Sprayed and roll out any of your Remaining dough to get all of your Crackers before baking use a skewer or Toothpick to poke a hole in the middle Of each cracker [Music] Then you can bake until crispy and Lightly browned now the Browner they are The crunchier they will become so I Would let them go a little more if You're open to them looking a little Browner then transfer to baking racks to Cool and they will crisp up more as they Cool as well these are delicious they're Salty and cheesy they've got a delicious Crunch and I also find it so satisfying To eat these store-bought remakes it's Fun to know that I made them myself and I find I tend to be more mindful with my
