Quick Cheesy Herb Crackers: these 5-ingredient, savory rich crackers are all that…and easy to make! A blue ribbon winner from the Illinois State Fair, they are tender, buttery, and did I mention rich? They tasted so good I admit to daydreaming about them between samples. They originate from Carlene, an avid state fair contester and blue ribbon baker who won 1st place in a 2013 Bisquick best recipe contest that we organized.

When Carlene won, she served her quick cheesy herb crackers with a homemade tomato bruschetta to spoon on top. When we made them, I was reminded how great anything home-made can taste. Using fresh herbs in them packed in the flavor. They go great as a savory snack alongside a big plate of mixed greens or other fresh salad.



Quick Cheesy Herb Crackers

Quick and Cheesy Herbed Crackers

1 cup Bisquick

½ cup sharp cheddar cheese

¼ cup parmesan cheese

2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves (or rosemary)

6 tablespoons softened butter

Additional Bisquick

In a medium bowl, toss together Bisquick, cheeses and thyme. Blend butter in with a fork or your fingers to blend thoroughly and form into a ball. Chill for 30 minutes. Sprinkle countertop with Bisquick and roll out dough thinly (about 1/8-inch thick), adding more Bisquick if too sticky. Cut out with a 2” cookie cutter, place on lightly greased baking sheet. Re-roll and cut remaining dough. Bake for about 10 minutes or until nicely browned. Spoon on topping of choice. Makes about 2 dozen crackers.
