Cheese Crackers

The recipe comes from Mark Bittman's 'How to cook everything Vegetarian'. I took the basic recipe of crackers and prepared these cheese crackers since my kids love those commercially sold ones.
The plain crackers happened to be very bland to my taste. I felt that they were good substitutes for the hard poories used in Indian chaat recipes.
I halved the below recipe of basic crackers for one more batch and also added about 1/4 cup of shredded cheddar cheese. The kids said they loved them but recommended more addition of cheese to it. Since the crackers could be baked in no time, I want to try next time with some changes to the basic recipe.

Ingredients for the basic recipe:
1 cup four + some for dusting
1/2 tsp salt
2 Tbsp butter / oil

1. Preheat the oven to 4oo deg F. Lightly dust a baking pan with flour.
2. Combine all the ingredients using a food processor or by hand. Then gradually add the water until the mixture holds together. The dough should be firm not sticky.
3. Roll out the dough on a floured work surface until 1 /4 inch thick or even thinner.
4. Score lightly with a knife to shape them into squares / rectangles.
5. Transfer them to the pan and bake them until lightly browned about 10 minutes or so. Cool on a rack.

These are going to 'Baking from the Book' event guest hosted by me this month, event creator being Champa.
