Pale Ale Cheez-It Crackers

Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons pale ale
  • 8 oz. extra sharp cheddar cheese (grated)
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter (cut into cubes)
  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 cup flour

Instructions

  1. Place beer in the freezer for 10 minutes
  2. Fit a stand mixer with the paddle attachment. On low speed, mix togther cheese, butter, and salt until well combined.
  3. Add the flour and continue mixing until small pea-sized pieces form then slowly add 1 tablespoon of beer at a time until the dough begins to form into a ball (not all of the beer may be needed).
  4. Form the dough into a disk, wrap with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for a minimum of 1 hour.
  5. Preheat oven to 350ºF and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  6. Turn the dough out on a lightly floured surface and roll into a 1/8-inch thick rectangle. Cut dough into 1-inch squares using a fluted pastry wheel or pizza cutter. Create a small hole in the center by using the back of a wooden skewer or a cake tester. Transfer crackers to the prepared baking sheets, leaving some space between each one.
  7. Bake on center rack for 15 to 20 minutes, until puffed and beginning to brown at the edges. Transfer crackers to a wire rack and allow to cool completely. Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
