Today is a BIG day for all of us University of Alabama football lovers.
I have been planning my tailgaten food all week long.
I would really love to claim this idea as my own, but the truth is, I saw it on Instagram last week.
Loved this idea and ordered a little "mini" elephant cookie cutter off Amazon.
Then I searched for a cheese crisp recipe.
And of course I had to change it to make it my own.
So, here we go!
Start with these ingredients
This really should be sifted all together. The salt, cayenne pepper and flour.
3 1/3 cups flour
1 TBSP salt
3 TBSP cayenne pepper
But. I couldn't find my sifter, so I used a whisk.
Beat 2 sticks of butter (room temp)
add 5 cups of shredded sharp cheese
and blend on med.
and blend some more.
slowly add flour mixture and keep blending. Add about 4 TBSP of water and blend until you get this consistency.
transfer the blob of cheese mixture to a flat surface covered with wax paper and roll it out to about 1/8" thickness
transfer to a baking sheet and put in the fridge for 15 min.
take out and start cutting with your cookie cutter
I added a bit more cayenne pepper only because "W" loves his cheese crisps spicy!
Bake for 14 min. (no longer or they will burn)
Also, this makes a lot of these little suckers. So you may split in half if you need less!
Have a great day y'all!
