i always wanted to try making goldfish crackers for clara, but never got around to it… finally, i decided to just go for it… it was so easy, i felt bad for not trying it sooner. =)
i found a homemade gold fish recipe and modified it. For the cookie cutter, they do have ready made fish cookie cutter, but i wanted the shape to be exactly the same as goldfish crackers, so i used a cookie cutter making kit to make my own. i have seen some pictures of people making their cookie cutters by cutting out a soda can, but i didn’t want to take a chance of cutting myself =)
1oz (28g) grated sharp cheddar cheese
1T (14g) butter
1T (7g) coconut flour
pinch onion powder
In a food processor, pulse all the ingredients until a dough forms. Wrap the dough in a plastic wrap and chill for 30 minutes.
Place the dough in-between parchment paper and roll to about 1/8in thickness. Cut out the shapes and transfer them to a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
Bake at 325 for 4-5 minutes, until the edges just start to brown. turn off the heat and let it sit in the oven for a few minutes for the crackers to crisp.
