 Recipe Information  
Category: Snacks
Recipe Entered By: susanne2t
Recipe Created By: Derived from a recipe by Roben Ryberg

4  ounces  cheddar cheese finely grated
1/2  cup  softened butter
1/3  cup  tapioca starch
1/2  cup  corn starch
  pinch  salt
1/4  tsp  xanthan gum
2 1/2  Tbsp  cream
1  Tbsp  tomato paste
1/4  tsp  Italian seasoning rubbed between fingers to make smaller pieces
1/8  tsp  garlic powder

Combine all dry ingredients with the butter and mix well. Mix will be quite crumbly. Add cream and tomato paste and beat until no lumps remain. Add cheese and mix well. The dough will be almost uniform in color.

Pat or roll out dough on unfloured surface to 1/4 inch thickness. Dough should not be stick at this point. If it sticks, refrigerate it for a few minutes. Cut straws approximately 1/3 inch wide and up to 5 inches long. Place on greased baking sheet.

Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes

-- you can also cut them out with small cookie cutters
-- you can use a cookie press and make shaped crackers (This is how we make them but you need to press out all the cookies asap or they won't come out well)

They are a little oily, but my kids loved them

To make plain cheese crackers, increase the cream to 3 Tablespoons and skip the tomato paste, garlic and Italian seasonings --
