Peppered Ham and Cheese Crackers


These rich and savory crackers are easy to stir up and bake. A perfect use for leftover ham, you can make dough ahead of time and keep in the freezer. Remove dough from freezer about an hour before slicing or shaping to bake.

  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter (room temperature)
  • 1 1/2 cups sharp cheddar cheese (extra-, grated)
  • 1/3 cup parmesan cheese (grated)
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups flour


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine ham, butter, Cheddar, Parmesan, paprika, salt and pepper in food processor; whirl until blended. Add flour. Pulse with on-and-off motions until blended. Put dough in cookie press, using desired shape. Press out dough onto ungreased cookie sheet, spacing 1 inch apart. Bake for 14-16 minutes until dark golden in color. Cool on wire rack. Cover and refrigerate if not serving immediately. Or freeze up to 3 weeks.
