Ingredients

1 cup (250 mL) whole wheat flour
1/3 cup (80 mL) sesame seeds
1 tsp (5 mL) baking powder
1/4 cup (60 mL) butter, softened
2 tbsp (30 mL) sugar
1 cup (250 mL) lightly packed shredded extra-Sharp Canadian Cheddar or 
Sharp Canadian Cheddar cheese
1/4 cup (60 mL) Milk

Preparation

In a bowl, combine flour, sesame seeds and baking powder. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until fluffy; beat in Cheddar cheese until well blended.

Using a wooden spoon, stir in flour mixture alternately with Milk, making 2 additions of flour and 1 of milk, mashing as necessary, until a stiff dough forms. Divide in half and squeeze each half into a log about 6 inches (15 cm) long and 1-1/2 inches (3 1/2 cm) in diameter. Wrap and refrigerate for about 3 hours until chilled, or for up to 1 day.

Preheat oven to 375 °F (190 °C) (or 350°F/180°C for dark baking sheets). Butter 2 large baking sheets or line with parchment paper.

Cut logs into 1/4-inch (1/2 cm) slices and place on baking sheets, at least 1 inch (2 1/2 cm) apart. Bake, one sheet at a time, for 10 to 12 min or until golden and firm. Let cool on baking sheet for 2 min, then transfer to a rack to cool. Serve warm or cooled.

Tips

Cooking Tip: Store baked crisps in a cookie tin at room temperature for up to 3 days or freeze in an airtight container for up to 3 months. Reheat before serving, if desired.

Tip for Kids: Let the kids stir the dough together and squeeze and roll it into logs.

For the Adventurous: Reduce sesame seeds to 2 tbsp (30 mL) and add 2 tbsp (30 mL) each, finely chopped green pumpkin seeds and poppy seeds and for heat, add 1/2 tsp (2 mL) cayenne pepper with the flour.

Use as a base for canapés topped with Cream cheese and smoked salmon, hot pepper or wine jelly or fresh bruschetta topping.
