Calling All Snack Recipes!

Recommended Posts

OK, I am sick to death of the same old snacks in my cupboards so....... I am in a baking mood and I need ideas!

I vented on my hubby yesterday about my serious lack of snacks he is ready and willing to help but I dont have any recipes!

I know there is a recipe for something simular to "cheese-its" but cant find that and have been looking for hours! I miss my "doritos" quite badly so something simular to those would be great also if anyone has a recipe for those also.


Just my .00000002 cents worth

If I knew what I was doing years ago I would have half a clue today!

The recipe for the pretend cheezits are on this website in the recipe section on the homepage. I tend towards muffins and biscuit type stuff, so I don't have much that can help you. I would look around on the recipe section.

Gluten Free Cheese Crackers

2 Tbsp. butter

1 egg

Pinch each of salt and chili powder

1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, finely grated

1 tsp. xanthan gum

3/4 cup white rice flour (brown rice flour makes them grainy)

1/4 cup potato starch

additional salt, to taste

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Mix butter, egg and seasonings in a mixing bowl until creamy. Beat in grated cheese one-third at a time. Be sure and blend very well. Add flours and xanthan gum and beat very well again. Dough will be fairly stiff, like play dough. Roll dough out very thin and cut into small squares (cracker sized). Transfer to cookie sheets. Press down to make crackers even thinner. Prick squares with a fork. Sprinkle with additional salt.

Bake at 375 degrees for 6 minutes, then reudce heat to 250 degreese, and bake for approximately 15 minutes more. Keep careful watch to make sure they do not turn brown. You want a deep golden orange-brown. Allow to cool before serving.

These crackers travel and keep very well. They stay crispy for up to three days.

Makes about 4 dozen 1-inch crackers.

So YUMMY! Visit my blog (see my profile) to look at a delicous pic :)

i've thought about experimenting with a non-dairy cheese substitute...still not disciplined enough to kick the dairy habit <_<
