  • Use only Sharp or extra sharp Cheddar cheese excellent flavor. Mild cheese doesn't give the special flavor. 
  • For healthy version replace all purpose flour with wheat flour or spelt flour.
  • Keep checking crackers after 5minutes when in oven as it will be done fast. Mine was done in 7 minutes and i turned them to other side and baked them for another 2-3 minutes.
