About Me

My photo

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I'm addicted to coupons and every penny counts. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your success stories with me as well.

Homemade Goldfish Crackers

 One of my favorite snacks in college and my single life was Goldfish Crackers and Dr. Pepper.  Some days I even considered that a meal. 
 
I can't even tell you how excited that I made my own "Goldfish Crackers" today even though they aren't in the fish shape.  Square (if you can even call it that) cheddar crackers that taste even better than Goldfish crackers.  This recipe is a winner and it made me feel like SuperMom.  Because who doesn't want to say they can make their own crackers??!!
 
Ingredients
1 1/4 cup Einkorn Flour
4 tablespoons butter
1 1/2 cup fresh grated extra sharp cheese
 
Directions
Combine all 3 ingredients in a blender and mix until it forms into dough.  This takes about 2-3 minutes.  Once dough is formed, roll dough on a floured surface.  Either cut dough into squares or find a cute shape cutter and make cute crackers.  Place on parchment lined cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes.  Allow cookies to cool on rack before storing. 
 
 
And that's it!  How incredibly simple is that.  I have been putting off this recipe for months because I was afraid it might be too time consuming.  It took all of 30 minutes from prep to cooking and we have yummy crackers that are disappearing quickly.  And I love that there are only 3 simple ingredients in them.
