Hot Dutch Kase Crackers

Would you describe yourself as a rogue baker, or do you strictly adhere to the recipe?

There was no recipe using a Dutch Kase. We went rogue, wild and crackers!

Tell us about how you added a Wisconsin twist to your creation.

Babcock's Dutch Kase is one of our very favorite local cheeses. We thought that the somewhat harder cheese would have less moisture and make for a better cracker than other cheeses we might have opted for. One mistake we made was using whole wheat flour. We had thought this might give a better snap and perhaps it did. The dough, however, was difficult to work with and we suspect the flour choice as the culprit. 3/4 tsp. of cayenne gives these crackers good heat. These are not bad, but far from our favorite bake. Next!

How did you do?

It’s not pretty, but it’s edible.
