Beet and Cheddar Crackers

I love these Beet and Cheddar Crackers. They are delicious and crispy and perfect to serve with cheese or hummus or your favorite cracker topping. The addition of beetroot puree to the dough gives these crackers a pink hue.

To make these crackers, start by cooking beets and shallots until tender. If the mixture starts to get dry, add a few tablespoons of water or beet juice to the saucepan. Once cooked, blend to make a smooth mixture and set aside. In a food processor, make the dough using flour, butter and cheese. Add the beets to the flour mixture. Chill the dough in the fridge and roll it out to make crackers. The thinner the dough, the crispier they will be! Cut the cracker shapes using a knife or wavy pizza cutter. Punch holes in the top of each cracker using a fork. Sprinkle with kosher salt and bake in the oven.

To make the Beet and Cheddar Crackers, you will need the following ingredients:
