Gluten-Free Crackers

These crackers are great eaten alone or with a dip or spread.  I like to use the almond flour from Trader Joes and extra sharp cheddar cheese.  There are a few extra steps when baking but it is worth it for a homemade gluten-free cracker.
Place 2 cups almond flour, 2 cups shredded cheddar, 1 tsp baking soda,
1 tsp dried thyme, 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, 1/4 tsp sea salt
and 1/3 cup cold water in food processor

Blend until a soft dough is formed

Cover dough and place in refrigerator for 30 minutes

Use about 1 tsp of dough and roll into balls
Place on silpat or parchment paper lined sheet pan
Cover the bottom of a juice glass with plastic wrap
Press each ball of dough until flat
Bake crackers in oven at 300 for 30 minutes
Remove from oven and let sit for 5 minutes then flip crackers over
Turn oven down to 200 and bake for 30 more minutes
Turn off oven and leave crackers in oven until cool
Store cooled crackers in an airtight container


Enjoy!
