Crunch, munch crackers are a must. Especially yellow ones, how my kids like to call them.
Beauty of these recipe is that you can choose the cheese of your choice and every time crackers will be different. Like spicy with pepper jack, zing with feta or creamy with fontina.
Love to have some homemade crackers on hand when on the go.
Selection of store bought gluten free crackers is limited and to be honest all those crackers are very pricey.
This is amazing recipe, super easy and quick to make. Also there is no eggs in this recipe.
Homemade Gluten-Free Cheddar Cheese Crackers
Makes 70 crackers, 1 inch size
2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 stick butter, cold
1/4 cup kefir
1 tsp. sea salt, optional
1 cup brown rice flour
1/2 cup tapioca flour
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
Combine the butter, cheese and kefir in the bowl of a mixer
and beat at slow speed until blended. Gradually add the flours until just combined, scraping the sides of the bowl if necessary. The dough should have all pulled away from the sides of the bowl and formed a ball.
Roll out the dough with a floured rolling pin until the disk is about an 1/8-inch thick. Cut with a cookie cutter shape no bigger then 1 inch.
Place dough 1 inch apart on the lined baking sheet and sprinkle with salt.
Let the crackers first rest in fridge for about 20 minutes and then transfer the pan to bake for 12-16 minutes or until golden.
Cool on baking sheets or wire racks for 20 minutes.
When completely cooled store crackers in an airtight container.

Surf rubber duckies birthday party idea, SOUNDS GREAT:-)
This is a super party idea for any age and everybody can enjoy the fun of water and cuteness of rubber duckies cupcakes!!
Ducky pool theme party can be at your local Gym, YMCA or any other indoor pool facility available for party rental.
In this case cupcakes were gluten free red velvet with cream cheese frosting.
In your pool party invitation, ask the party guests to bring their swimsuits, a change of clothes, flip flops and a towel.
Use fun pool party supplies to pull in the summer theme, oversized beach balls are always a hit!
The entire party time will be taken with the kids swimming and playing together in the pool. Hopefully, you will dive right in and lead some games, or have a few parents who are interested in getting in as well so they can lead games too:
- Have a rubber duck race. Give each child a rubber duck and have them use their noses to move it to the other side of the pool. First one there wins!
- Play water volleyball!
- Have a splash contest from the diving board to see who can make the biggest splash! Make sure to follow pool rules, however!
- Play Shark! Have the birthday kid start off as the shark and tag the fish (the rest of the kids in the pool). As the fish are tagged, they also become sharks. The game is over when the pool is full of sharks!
