Rosemary Crackers

I have discovered that making crackers is much more fun than buying a box at the grocery store.  I think these would be a fabulous gift with some delicious cheeses (or the crackers alone would work).  They take no time at all and are, of course, SIMPLE and DELICIOUS.

Rosemary Crackers
(Recipe adapted from Martha Stewart)

3/4 cup All Purpose Flour
1 teaspoon kosher salt (you can use table salt)
pinch of pepper
2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh rosemary
3 Tablespoons chilled unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
1 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese (or any hard cheese you choose to use)
5 Tablespoons sour cream

Directions

1.  Combine flour, salt, pepper and rosemary in the bowl of a food processor; pulse to combine.
2.  Add butter; pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal.
3.  Add cheese, pulse until combined.
4.  Add 1 Tablespoon of the sour cream at a time, pulsing each time to combine.  Process until dough comes together and is well combined.
5.  Transfer dough to a work surface.  Shape dough into a 2 inch wide log.  Wrap with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 24 hours.
6.  Heat oven to 325 degrees. Slice chilled log into 1/4 inch thick slices.  Transfer slices to a parchment lined baking sheet.  Bake immediately, rotating sheet once, util crackers are golden brown and firm in center, 25-30 minutes.  Transfer to rack to cool.
