Daring Bakers-Crackers-Challenge #9

Our July 2012 Daring Bakers’ Host was Dana McFarland and she challenged us to make homemade crackers! Dana showed us some techniques for making crackers and encouraged to use our creativity to make each cracker our own by using ingredients we love.

I loved this challenge. It reminded me how quick and easy it is to make great tasting crackers. I decided to make two versions of a cheddar cayenne cracker; an icebox version and a rolled version.  The clear winner of the two was the icebox version.  I think the reason was the addition of cream in the recipe that made for a smoother tasting cracker.  I made the crackers a few days ago, and there now is just a handful left.
