Cheese Crackers

I came across this Martha Stewart recipe for cheese crackers and its a great recipe.  For health reasons I have totally removed all-purpose-flour from our diet. I have been replacing all purpose flour with Besan (chickpea flour).  So I have used besan in this recipe.

Ingredients : 1 cup grated cheese (you may use cheddar, havarti, swiss or any other kind you have on hand) 
1/4 cup butter (room temperature)
3/4 cup Besan
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1/8 tsp paprika
1 tbsp milk or cream

Method: Put all of the above ingredients in a food processor and blend until it forms a dough.  Divide the dough into two parts.  Place each part in a ziploc bag and roll each part into 1/4 inch thick rectangle. Refrigerate the rolled dough for 30 minutes.  Remove from fridge after 30 minutes and remove the dough from the plastic bag cut each rectangle into 1 inch squares.  Put this on a baking tray with a parchment paper on it leaving a 1/4 inch gap between each piece.  Refrigerate this for 20 minutes.  Now preheat oven to 325 degrees F.  Remove the baking tray from fridge after 20 minutes and bake for 15 to 17 minutes.  Remove the crackers from the oven and let it cool.

Note: I had havarti cheese flavoured with Jalapeno which is what I used for the above recipe and it tasted amazing!
