my attempt at Cheez-Its.
- 200g orange cheddar
- 42g unsalted butter
- 12g vegetable shortening
- .5 tsp salt
160g strong flour
2 tbsp ice water
Mix the first set of ingredients together. I used a food processor
to make a fine grained mix. Add in ice water and mix together into
a dough. Split into two balls and then put in the fridge.
Roll it out and roll it through a pasta machine at setting #1. Cut
into small squares and poke in the middle with a toothpick. Then
bake on a parchment or non-stick tray at 190C for 12 minutes.
Remove from tray right away and then dump on a pile on a tray. Bake
for 5 minutes at 180C. Mix them up and bake at 180C for 4 minutes.
The results are good. The ingredients on the box say yeast and
vegetable oil - no butter, shortening or water. Must experiment
