Goldfish Crackers Made From Scratch

Aren't these the cutest Crackers and made with love
the kids can even help

you can get a cutter in different sizes here or even Hobby Lobby

1 C all-purpose flour
4 T cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
8 oz cheddar cheese (This is the fun part! Pick out whatever type of cheddar that you like! I used orange cheddar for half of the fish, as shown above, and white cheddar for the other half, as shown below. Both cheddars that I used were extra sharp because that's how I like it!)
1/2 t salt
1/2 t fresh-ground pepper
A fish cookie cutter. I got mine from CopperGifts.

Pulse the flour, butter, cheese, salt, and pepper together using a food processor until the mixture resembles coarse meal.
Pulse in 3 to 4 tablespoons of water, one tablespoon at a time, and only enough so that the dough forms a ball and rides the blade.
Remove, wrap in plastic, and chill for 20 minutes or up to 24 hours.
Line 2 baking pans with parchment paper and set aside.
Roll the dough out to 1/8-inch thickness. (If you roll it thicker, it will still work, but the crackers won't be quite as crunchy. This dough rolled out so easily; you'll wish that you always worked with cheddar!)
Cut out as many crackers as possible.
Place them 1 inch apart on the prepared baking pans.
Bake at 350 F until golden and crisp - 15 to 20 minutes.
