Jalapeno-Cheddar Crackers

Jalapeno-Cheddar Crackers

Holy cow, where did you come from, March?  I guess you are here and we should embrace you.  Truly, I am in the mood for some spring-like weather so I am going to hope that you are bringing it to us here in the Midwest!

A while back, I told you about a soup swap that I attended.  At that soup swap, there were these out-of-this-world-amazing crackers that I could not, would not stop eating.

They were so buttery, like shortbread, but savory with a hint of spicy jalapeno and sharp cheddar.  Luckily, the hostesses were not stingy in keeping the recipe to themselves and I finally got around to making them at home.

Addictive is an understatement when it comes to these crackers.  They nearly melt in your mouth and were so, so simple to make!

I am sharing the recipe today at Bran Appetit.  My friend Brandi is having a (hopefully!) simple outpatient surgery today so I’m helping her out.  Brandi and I share a love of the Civil Wars, simple meals, decadent desserts and Friday.  I had the pleasure of meeting her at Food Blog Forum a while back and she is just as sweet in person as she is on her blog.  Hop on over, say hi and enjoy these crackers!

    I’ve never been big on store bought crackers but a homemade version is one of my favorites! These sound amazing and I love how thick and substantial they look!

    I so cannot believe that it is already March! It seems that New Years was just yesterday!
    And, these crackers look so yummy. I love the idea of making crackers at home.

    Nicole @ youngbrokeandhungry — March 2, 2013 @ 12:21 am

    These crackers look perfectly snackable. Since I am a huge cheeze it and ritz fan, this recipe seems to meld the two. I would be popping them all day long.

    Cass @foodmyfriend — March 2, 2013 @ 4:06 am

    How scary is March coming along?! It’s just crazy how quickly the days are flying by. I love making my own cheesy crackers. You have done such a beautiful job 🙂

    Oh my gosh. I made cheddar shortbread yesterday. I came to the conclusion that they weren’t good enough for posting but then I ate all of them within a few hours. Cheese and carbs. I just can’t…

    And cheddar crackers! YES! Favorite snack ever.

    Cassie! I can’t believe it’s March either. Where has the time gone?!?!! Oh and I’ve never made crackers at home before. What am I waiting for!!!

    I could tell you that I’m going to be serving these to someone but it’s a lie…I’ll make them myself and eat them myself. Two of my favourite things are cheddar cheese and spicy chilis…so this is a match made in my belly!

    Laurie {Simply Scratch} — March 4, 2013 @ 8:16 am
