I made gluten-free Cheez-its type crackers!

Gluten free Cheez-its

I am super-proud of my mad culinary skills, y’all! Because I made gluten-free cheez-its. And they were DELICIOUS! Now, I’m not totally perfect (sorry to burst your bubble). My 2nd batch was way better than my first.  But dang, are they GOOD!! I didn’t realize how much I missed crackers until I found myself frantically stuffing my face with these.

Now just so I am not accused of recipe stealing, I got the recipe here from Fields of Green . Well, actually I got it from my friend Kris, but she got it from Fields of Green.  It’s also pinned on my Gluten Free Pinterest board if that’s easier for you.

Here is a trick I learned by trial and error. In the recipe it notes that it’s really important to get the dough rolled very thin. Well, I learned that what I thought was thin was not thin enough. So the second time around I rolled it as thin as I could, cut out my crackers, then cut each one in half and rolled them again individually. More time consuming but it made a much crispier cracker! If you are a real baker you probably have some tool that does that for you (ahem, Becky Dell.)

Also, the first time I pricked them with a fork, but then I decided that didn’t look authentic enough, so the second time I just made one whole in the center like a real Cheez-it (as you can see in the picture a the top of this post).

My first batch finished.

So there ya go. They were awesome. Even the non-GF kids in my family loved them! I hope you do, too. If you decide to make these, here’s another tip: I got my sweet rice flour on Amazon because I didn’t want to take the time to go out and hunt for it in a store. Plus, at the time it was a really good price.

Enjoy! Let me know if you make them!
