Transylvanian Cheese Crackers

Recently we discovered Transylvanian Romanian Cave Cheese from Happy Farms at Aldi’s, always up for trying something new we brought it home. After cracking open the package we found we loved this stinky cheese. It’s similar to Asiago but bigger and bolder. After all, it’s aged in a salt cave and soaked in red wine. Did we mention it’s AMAZING? And Stinky. And altogether awesome. And what better way to put this cheese to good use? Transylvanian Cheese Crackers of course!!!

Transylvanian Cheese Crackers

 
1 cup of shredded Transylvanian Romanian Cave Cheese
1/4 of a cup of softened grass-fed butter
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon Celtic sea salt (adjust to taste)
2 tablespoons of ice water
 

Measure grate and measure your cheese. Place your softened butter and sea salt into a bowl and add the cheese and stir well until creamy. Next, you want to add your flour. Then, add your water slowly until it forms a nice ball. It takes a little bit for it to get into the ball so don’t add too much and get mush. 🙂

Pat your dough down and refrigerate it for until nice and stiff (about an hour or so).

Preheat your oven now to 375 degrees F.

Remove from the refrigerator and roll out with your rolling pin until it is nice and thin. It needs to be about 1/8″ thick.

Pat the dough into a disk and put in the fridge for an hour.

Then, roll out the dough until it’s 1/8 of an inch. When your dough is the right thickness cut them into 1″ squares.  You can use a pizza wheel, a ravioli wheel, pastry wheel, or knife to do this.
