Why Do Crackers Have Holes?

Have you ever wondered why crackers have holes in them? That’s true of many crackers from the ones you buy to this homemade cracker recipe.

Well, these holes are known as docking holes, and their purpose is to stop bubbles growing and bursting which would make the crackers misshapen.

Commercially, a docker is a machine that makes the holes to let air escape. In this homemade cheddar cheese crackers recipe though, you just need a fork to make them. The holes keep the rosemary and cheddar crackers crispy and thin.

Homemade Cracker Recipe Tips

The dough should be a good consistency to roll out, so if it’s sticky when mixing, you can add more flour. Only add a little at a time though, because adding too much will make it dry and too crumbly.

Roll out the dough in an even layer so the crackers will be the same thickness. This doesn’t have to be totally exact, since homemade crackers are supposed to look rustic anyway, but it does ensure they cook evenly.

Keep your eye on these cheddar cheese crackers when they are getting to the end of the cooking time. You will be able to see when they are golden brown. At this point you can either take them out of the oven or give them up to five more minutes to make them extra crisp.

Let these homemade cheese bites cool down on a cooling rack and then you can store them in an airtight container. They will be fine for six or seven days, but go a bit softer each day.

Cheddar Cheese Crackers: Some Variations

This easy cracker recipe can be tweaked if you want to change it up. Cheddar cheese works well in these, either sharp or mild, but you can use another kind of cheese. Gruyere works well, as would parmesan. You could also combine more than one type of cheese.

Take a look to see what you have in the refrigerator. Pretty much anything goes. You could even grate a block of cheese yourself rather than buying it shredded.

As for the rosemary, try basil instead. Even cilantro would work if you’re using a spicy cheese or adding a little chilli powder to the dough. Get creative and try mixing and matching some different cheeses and herbs to see which you prefer.
