Gruyere Cheese Crackers
Gruyere cheese crackers are adorably crunchy little crisps with plenty of toasty cheese flavor ~ made with a cookie press! (Slice and bake instructions, too.)
Here’s how it happened ~ I set out to make cheese straws, and ended up invented a cute new cheese board essential ~ the cheese spritz! My cheese crackers are made with a simple cheese straw dough, simply stamped out with a cookie stamp. It all started when I couldn’t get my cookie press to press out the long straw shapes needed for cheese straws. I decided to cut my losses and try to stamp out the dough instead, and it was an instant success! These little bite sized cheese crackers are crisp, cheesy, and divine.
