Cheddar Cheese Crackers, Gluten and Egg Free

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.
