We’ve been making and cooking just about everything from scratch lately.  It’s been absolutely wonderful.  We’re spending much less on food, we’ve actually eating more than we used to, and we always have left overs in the fridge.

Taking this one step further, we started talking about making our own snacks too… things like chips, sweets, and crackers.  Asa took the lead on this one, looked up a good cheese-it recipe online, and attempted to recreate the mouth magic which are cheesy cheese-its.

Cutting up dough after rolling it out.  We found that, after Phong’s not so nicely cut up cheese its, you can roll the dough down pretty thin, even thinner than what’s recommended on the recipe.  It called for about 1/8″ thick, but they puff up so much that you can get away with less than that.

Nice and even.  That’s what a patient and steady hand gets you.

Sprinkle some salt…




These lasted about 10 minutes or until they were cool enough to nom.
