Sourdough Discard Cheese Crackers

Sourdough Discard Cheese Crackers

Sourdough Discard Cheese Crackers 


2 Tablespoons Butter

1 cup All-Purpose Flour

3/4 Cup Sourdough Discard 

3/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Kosher salt for sprinkling. 



  1. Preheat Oven to 375 degrees 
  2. In a bowl, combine the butter and flour in a medium mixing bowl. Rub the butter into the flour with your hands until you get a sand like consistency. 
  3. Add in the sourdough discard and mix. 
  4. Add in the cheddar cheese and combine. You may need to use your hands to make sure the dough forms a ball. 
  5. Turn the dough out onto a piece of parchment paper and top with a second piece of parchment. Roll out as thin as you can using a rolling pin. 
  6. Remove the top parchment paper and cut the dough into squares. I use a “pizza cutter” to make it easy! 
  7. Transfer paper to a baking sheet and sprinkle the crackers with the kosher salt. 
  8. Bake for 10-13 minutes. They should be crisp and lightly browned when they are finished! 




When it comes to the summer time, we are lucky that the kids can eat most of their snacks from the garden. We catch them eating up whatever they find all the time. But during the summer, this is a new go to recipe that we use. My goal is to pull away from the processed foods as much as possible and stick with more homemade items. Lots of people don’t understand why we do but its mostly because I personally have digestive issues and I would love to keep my kids digestive tracts healthier than mine. 


So pulling away from processed foods is how we plan to get around it. Now I know not everyone can make all of the snacks homemade and I don’t expect you to. Do what you can and what works for your family, but for my family, we are making the homemade snacks!!! 


My kids are obsessed with goldfish and cheese its, so why not make them here at home! I also love these as well as my husband also loves these. We have been snacking on them nonstop when we go on trips. This is also a great idea to use for bento box type meals! I think I want to try mixing the dough and then freezing it before I thaw and cook it a different day. I want to see if it does well with the freezing time. If so then I can make a lot of the dough at once and then put them into the freezer for when we are ready!
