Middle siblings seem to always get the short end of the stick. Well, mine is no exception! We are a family that values food above much else, so when we found out that Alicia had Celiac Disease, everything changed. After being diagnosed with Celiac Disease, you shouldn’t eat gluten. It’s fairly complicated, but it’s incredibly serious. Of course, this meant a huge dietary change was in order.
McVitie’s Mini Cheddars are a huge weakness for my sisters and I. When we got word of Alicia’s Celiac, this was our first major concern. How on earth is she to eat Mini Cheddars again?! Well, look no further than here because we came up with the most AMAZING recipe for gluten free crackers that taste almost identical! (You can also make these with regular flour, if you aren’t gluten free!).
Line a baking tray and preheat oven to 350 F.
Start by combining 1/2 cup 1-to-1 gluten free flour, 1/4 cup ground almonds and a 1/2 cup of shredded sharp cheddar in a medium bowl. Add in a pinch of salt and pepper, followed by an egg and 1/4 cup melted butter. Mix until completely combined.
Flour a clean surface with gluten free flour and plop your dough down onto it. Flour a rolling pin liberally and begin rolling evenly until your dough is as thin as desired. It works best around 3-4mm thick.
Start cutting out your shapes with a small cutter and transfer to your lined baking tray. Prick with a fork and bake for 10 minutes, or until desired ‘crispiness’ has been reached. Voila! it is as simple as that!
