Nabisco Cheese Nips

Recipe Rating: 5.0 (1 reviews)

Here's a clone recipe that gets one very important ingredient from another packaged product. The powdered cheese included in the Kraft instant macaroni & cheese kits flavors this homegrown version of the popular bright orange crackers. You'll need a can of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese cheese topping or two boxes of the most inexpensive instant variety of macaroni & cheese; you know, the kind with the cheese powder. Two boxes will give you enough cheese to make 300 crackers. As for the macaroni left over in the box, just use that for another recipe requiring elbow macaroni.

1 cup sifted all-purpose flour (plus 1/2 cup divided and reserved for kneading and rolling)
1 teaspoon baking soda

WOW!! all I can say is thank you! These are absolutely incredible. My sister and I love cheese nips and these are perfect. Just like the original. I find when making crackers it is best to have the shortening or butter chilled first so it will really stand up in the flour. Do Not over mix, the trick is to have little pockets of shortening throughout. (It creates the crispiness through layering) This may be hard for the novice cook to re create though. THIS RECIPE IS A WINNER!
