Vegan Cheezits

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Daiya Cheddar Shreds, or try their Jalepeno Havarti or Pepper Jack for a twist
  • 3/4 cup Organic Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
  • 3 TBSP Earth Balance Buttery Spread
  • 1/4 tsp Pink Himalayan Sea Salt
  • 3-4 TBSP cold water

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Add Cheese and Butter to your KitchenAid mixing bowl and mix on high for about 5 minutes until the cheese is really broken up and makes a nice paste with the butter.
  3. Add the flour and the salt and mix just until incorporated.
  4. Add your water 1 TBSP at a time (you may not need all of it), stirring with wooden spoon and scraping down sides of bowl. You want a soft pliable ball of dough, not too wet or too dry.
  5. Work into a nice smooth ball with your hands, then divide dough into two balls.
  6. Roll out between 2 sheets of parchment. You want it pretty thin.
  7. Cut into squares with a pizza cutter or your knife of choice, then poke a little hole in each square using a tooth pick.
  8. Sprinkle with Sea Salt and gently use the pizza cutter to pick up each square and put in on your lined baking sheet.
  9. Bake between 12-20 minutes. Some may get really browned, and that’s ok, just don’t let them burn, but you do want them lightly brown to make sure they are nice and crunchy.
  10. Repeat with second ball of dough or refrigerate for later use.
