Jalapeno Cheesy Snack Crackers

After making my cheddar cheese snack crackers I decided to try jalapeno snack crackers because I like it spicy!  These are just as delicious as the cheddar cheese crackers but definitely have the kick of being jalapeno crackers.  If you like spicy snacks like me, you need to make these.

Here's what you need:
4 cups jalapeno jack cheese, grated
5 Tbs. butter, unsalted at room temperature
1 tsp. kosher salt
1 cup flour, all purpose
3 - 5 Tbs. ice cold water

In the bowl of a stand mixer mix the butter, cheese, and salt until well combined.
Add the flour and mix well, it will crumbly and dry.
Add enough ice water to get a dough like consistency and until it completely sticks together. I used about 4 Tbs.
Place dough in plastic wrap and chill for 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Remove dough from fridge and cut in half.  On parchment or a clean surface, roll dough out until it is 1/8" thick approximately.
Using a sharp knife or a pizza cutter, like I do, cut strips 1 - 1-1/2 inches thick one way then the other to make squares.
Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 13 - 15 minutes.  They are better when they are a little on the brown side because they are crunchier.
