Being in a relationship with a geek for 6 years, I've faltered and embraced the geek culture as well. So, of course, when I stumbled upon the wonderfully cute Snack or Die page, I instantly knew I just had to make one of their recipes straight away! As I don't really have much of a sweet tooth, I opted for the Pac-Man cheese crackers. The original recipe used cheddar, but I had gouda, so I used that and it worked just fine. I'm honestly amazed at just how quick, easy and delicious these crackers turned out! It took me literally five minutes to make them (of course, baking time not included), and for something with so few ingredients, they tasted amazingly rich! To be completely honest, hubby and I almost ate the whole batch before taking the pictures!
Update: my Pac-Man crackers will be featured at Happy Love Strawberry's birthday blog event. If you would like to participate as well, please visit this yummy blog!
1 cup/120 g flour
4 tbsp/60 g butter
8 oz/230 g cheese
salt to taste
1/2 tsp pepper
4 tbsp/60 ml water
Just combine all the ingredients and pulse them in a food processor or blender, or shred the cheese and knead the dough by hand. Either way, it's really easy. Leave the dough in the fridge for 20 minutes, then roll it out (on a floured surface). You can, of course, use any shape of cookie cutters, but if you want to stick with the Pac-Man theme, use a round one first, and then cut out the mouth using a star-shaped cutter.
Bake in a preheated oven (400°F/200°C) for 20 minutes.
