Cheddar Stars


Serving Size:


Special Info:

Nut free


  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 cup butter, diced and chilled
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 tablespoon iced water


In a food processor add flours, salt and cheese. Blend until combined (about 10 seconds).

Add butter; pulse until it has a breadcrumb texture.

With the motor running, pour in water and egg yolks – it will look like small grains.

Stop the motor, turn mixture into a medium bowl and kneed together with your hands.

Once in a ball, flatten into a disc, wrap in glad wrap and pop into the fridge for 20 minutes to firm up.

Preheat oven to 350°. Roll out dough on a floured board until ¼ in. thick. Grab the kids and their favorite cutters and start cutting shapes.

Place on a baking tray with baking paper and cook for 15 minutes.

Cool on wire rack.


  • When working the pastry, try not to knead it for too long; as soon as it is well combined, let it cool down in the fridge.
  • These crackers store well in an airtight container for about a week.
