Homemade Cheez-Its has been on my ‘want to copycat that’ list for such a long time. Recipes and photos have been popping up in my blog feeds for what seems like years! I wasn’t too into Cheez-Its until last year when my Mom, brother and I started an unofficial mission to try every flavor. We would split a big box every week for work/school snacks, discuss where that week’s flavor ranked, and then hunt down a new one. I’m pretty sure I’ve told you guys how weirdly obsessed I am with gimmicky food flavors and novelty releases – I ain’t kiddin’. I haven’t been buying boxes for myself since I’ve been away from home because what’s the fun in that? I guess that’s what made me finally give the homemade version a try! I still can’t believe how easy they are to make and they taste remarkably similar. Now, this doesn’t mean I’ll give up on trying new Cheez-It flavors, but I’ll definitely continue making these when I have a craving. My two tips for if you try this are 1) roll the dough as thin as you can and 2) don’t skimp on the cheese (duh). The first batch I made had a few slightly over puffed and under-cheezed crackers. As always, let me know if you do this too!
And P.S. if you’re wondering what our favorite Cheez-It flavor was…I honestly can’t remember. However, I think I remember being most disappointed by Baby Swiss. Also, did you guys know that this exists? Um, gross? Even my obsession can’t take me far enough to buy Cheez-It lip balm.
