Christmas is coming, and our to-do list is becoming never ending. So much to do, not enough time. Especially if you have 2 toddlers who seem to be running on batteries all day long. And trust me, the day is long!

It might sound like a cliché, but when you are stretched from pillar to post, you get to appreciate when one thing is ticked off your to-do list.

Everybody loves chocolatey desserts, all sorts of christmassy sweet treats, but, if you are a savoury kind of person, then a good snack in a must, not matter the occasion.

Just to have something to nibble on while the dinner is getting ready, or even while you enjoy a drink.

And these cheese crackers are just what we need. Way better than any store-bought cheesy straws or whatever, they are absolutely delicious, and toddler-friendly too. Not a trace of margarine or any such nastiness added.

And, bonus point, you can make them with the kids, they are fun and super easy to whip up. Use any cookie cutter shape you have, but make sure they have pretty much the same size, otherwise they baking time will be different.

The star cookie cutter I have is rather small, so the crackers were ready in about 10 minutes, but if you use a bigger cutter, you might need to leave them for 2-3 minutes longer.

Just keep an eye on them, they can burn up quickly. And you get some flaky, beautifully golden, healthy and sugar-free homemade cheese crackers.

You don’t even need a food processor for this, everything can be done by hand super quickly. All you need is equal amounts of each ingredient, and job done.

Add any other cheese you like, parmesan, or any other sort. Just make sure you refrigerate the dough at least an hour before cutting out the shapes and baking.

And that’s all, just enjoy the best party food you can munch on, from little to big ones.
