Before I started eating gluten free, one of my favorite snacks was Cheese Nips. You know, those wonderfully cheesy, crunchy cheese crackers. I had a box of them in my car at all times, I loved them so much. It was really hard to give them up. I have been experimenting with cheese cracker recipes since 2007, and while this one doesn’t taste like my old familiar Cheese Nips, it DOES taste good. You may also want to take a look at these slow carb recipes–many of them are gluten free too.
Gluten Free Cheese Crackers:
1 cup Gluten Free Bisquick
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (or chipotle, if you prefer)
1 Tbs Worchestershire Sauce (be sure it says gluten free on the label)
Mix dry ingredients together in a bowl. Add cheese, and mix well. Beat the egg, butter, and Worchestershire sauce together, then add to dry ingredients. Stir with a fork until all ingredients are wet, then knead with your hands until the dough is smooth.
Pinch off bits about the size of 1-2 teaspoons. Roll into balls, then flatten as flat as you can. The thinner these are, the better they turn out. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees 15-18 minutes, or until crisp. Makes about 4 dozen.
