These are like a Cheese-it but better and with a kick from some added seasoning!
Chili and Cheese Crackers
1 cup white whole wheat flour
4 tbs cold butter, cut into small squares
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar
1/4-1/2 cup ice cold water
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp chili powder
Coarse sea salt to sprinkle
With a pastry blender cut in your butter and flour until you have pea sized bits.
Mix in cheese and spices.
Slowly add in water until a dough forms and it is not to sticky to handle.
Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 350.
On a large piece of parchment paper roll dough out until it is the thickness of pie crust 1/8 inch 'ish'. Use flour for dusting if needed.
With a pastry cutter or sharp knife cut out 1 inch squares (I did 2x1 inch rectangles).
Sprinkle with sea salt.
Do not remove dough from paper.
Transfer paper to a cookie sheet
Bake for about 25 minutes or until they are slightly brown and crisp.
Let them cool completely before breaking them apart.
