Sourdough Cheez-its Recipe

·

These homemade sourdough cheez-its are easy to make in the blender, fluffy, cheesy, crunchy, and a must try better-than-store bought snack this summer!

Ingredients you'll need:

  • 8 oz. Sharp Cheddar Cheese, grated
  • 1 cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1/3 cup Active Sourdough Starter
  • 1/4 cup Cold Butter, cubed
  • 1/2 tsp. Fine Sea Salt
  • Flaky Salt, for garnishing

How to Make Homemade Sourdough Cheez-its:

  1. Preheat oven to 325F.
  2. In a food processor, combine the flour, salt, and grated cheddar. Pulse until well combined.
  3. Add the butter and pulse 2-3 more times, until crumb like texture.
  4. Add the sourdough starter and mix on LOW until moist crumb-like texture. The dough will be a little crumbly but can stick together when pressed between two fingers.
  5. Roll out the mixture with a rolling pin between two sheets of parchment paper to 1/8" thick. Use a spatula to help press in and square off any edges.
  6. Use a flutter pastry cutter to slice the individual cheez-its squares, about 1" squares, then a toothpick to poke the centers.
  7. Sprinkle with flaky salt before baking, if desired.
  8. Bake for 18-22 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through, until puffed up and deep golden color. If needed, separate the cheez-its in the last 5 minutes of baking so the edges are crispy. Otherwise, they should separate easily after baking.
  9. Let cool completely before storing away.

How to Substitute the Sourdough Starter?

Simply substitute the sourdough starter with 2 tbsp of cold milk!

How to Store Homemade Cheez-its?

Once the cheese crackers have completely cooled, you can store in an airtight container (preferably glass) at room temperature for up to 5-7 days. Keep away from moisture and direct sunlight to keep it fresh longer.
