FFwD - Cheez-it-ish Crackers


This week's French Fridays with Dorie recipe is Cheez-it-ish Crackers.  These are cheese biscuits with a kick of cayenne pepper.  They are easy to make, and delicious to eat - a perfect combination.  As Dorie says, they would be the perfect accompaniment to a cheese platter. 

To see what the other Dorie cooks thought of this recipe, visit the LYL section of the FFwD website.

I loved these crackers, more like buttery shortbread though...thanks for your visit, great to hear from the other side of the world;-)
Have a very Merry Christmas;-)

I love the idea of pepper in these :)

I wish mine had come out like shortbread too! Mine were puffy which was fine and they tasted great but I love the crumbly look of everyone else's!

Merry Christmas! These little crackers will be a perfect nibble when you need to take a break from the sweets, don't you think?

Sara said...

Definitely a nice, little cracker - very good for guests! Happy holidays to you!

I think I added too much cayenne because I needed to temper it with some cranberry date jam.

We all loved these cookies! Have a very merry Christmas!

In my opinion, these were wonderful! I didn't mention it in my post, but not only are they great with a glass of wine, but also with coffee next morning. ;)

Cayenne sounds like it would be so good in these! I made some similar crackers last week, but now I need to try this recipe.

Happy Holidays, Gaye. First, I am delighted with my Tour of Australia hankerchief. You don't know me well but I love stuff like that. And, I've managed to pull that out in front of a few friends, name drop, "Dorie, Gaye, InternationalCooking group" and it's a conversation starter. Thanks you. I liked these crackers also. Of course I am the only person in America who had no idea what Cheez-its were. I've never had one and I don't think they sell them in Australia. (If Australia haven't imported them yet, don't let them in.) I understand they make your tongue yellow for days. I hope this Season gives you a few days out of the office and time to relax with family and friends.

These are perfect for a cheese platter, with a glass of wine, of course. I hope you have a lovely holiday! Merry Christmas!

It's nice to have an easy recipe that's elegant and delicious, isn't it? Have a lovely holiday!

Your crackers look perfect. I just loved these and couldn't stop popping them into my mouth!

You nailed it with your description- "easy to make, easy to eat". Sadly, I have eaten more CheezIts than I should admit to, but making Dorie's homemade (and way yummier) version seems to give me license to enjoy even more ! Happiest of holidays :)

Your version of cheese crackers look so elegant and so nicely presented. They have a great color! I would like to take the opportunity to tell you that is a real joy being part of this wonderful and dedicated group of Dorista bakers and cooks and I am looking forward to the coming year! Wishing you and your family very Happy Holidays!

I don't make crackers near enough, and they are always so easy to make and far superior to anything that comes in a package from the market. Yours look wonderful!
