Gorgonzola IPA Crackers

I don’t know about you, but when it’s this hot outside, I don’t feel like doing anything! Except for drinking a great, cold beer ;)! I wanted to find a recipe that didn’t involve much work or heated up my house, but satisfied my hunger. Thus, Gorgonzola IPA Crackers from Beer and Baking.

Ingredients: (Makes about 30-50 crackers)

  • 1 cup AP Flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup of crumbled gorgonzola cheese
  • 4 tablespoons of cold butter cut into small cubes
  • 1/4 cup of beer ( This recipe used Four Peaks Hop Knot IPA)

Cooking Directions:

  1. In a food processor pulse together the flour, salt, cheese, and butter.
  2. Add the beer until the mixture comes together into a ball.
  3. Put the mixture in some plastic wrap and put in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
  4. Heat the oven to 400 degrees F. Using the wonderful trick of rolling out dough between two sheets of plastic wrap, roll out your dough to about a 1/4 inch thick.
  5. Using a pizza cutter or a pasta wheel cutter cut your cracker shapes.
  6. Put onto a silpat or parchment paper and then stab with a fork to create air holes.
  7. Add salt or any other topping to your desire. Put the crackers in the oven for about 10-15 minutes before baking them so they kept the shape better.
  8. Bake for 15 minutes. I rotated them halfway through and waited to take them out until I could see a little browning on the crackers.
  9. Allow to cool completely.

TIP: These crackers last about 3 to 4 days so eat them while they’re fresh for the best taste!

These crackers will be perfect for any gathering or late night snack. I can also see myself making a little basket full of these crackers and some craft beers for a great birthday gift. I can’t wait to try this recipe!
