Don't let the pressure to whip up crowd-pleasing treats spoil your spirit. Take a tip from me and plan ahead using Wilton's new, easy-to-use Cookie Master(tm) Plus. It's not just for making cookies; you can create crackers to delight everyone from ravenous sports fans to the most sophisticated food connoisseurs. For my favorite Cheddar Cheese Spritz Cracker, you'll need:
To make these savory treats, preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
Combine the cheese, butter, Worcestershire and hot red pepper sauce in a medium bowl and stir until smooth. In a separate bowl, mix flour and seasonings together and gradually add them to the cheese mixture. Keep mixing until the dough forms a smooth ball, then shape the dough into small logs and fill the Cookie Master Plus.
Using any desired shape disk, such as a star, rectangle, diamond or swirl, press the crackers onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
Finally, bake 10-12 minutes or until lightly golden brown, then cool on a rack two minutes before removing the crackers from the sheet.
Once the crackers are made, you've got a fantastic foundation for a sumptuous appetizer to suit a host of occasions. For pleasing football fans, use the crackers to top hearty chili. Add a dollop of seafood pate to accompany New Year's champagne.
Pair the crackers with a comforting stew for a cozy mid-winter dinner party. Or offer the crackers with an array of fine meats, cheeses and fruits for a terrific party spread.
