Cheese Cracklins from Charlie Brown

  • Yield 20 pieces

These cheese balls are super easy to make, using only four ingredients, and make a great appetizer.

Mark Boughton/styling: Teresa Blackburn


1 cup Cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons butter
-- Water


  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Mix cheese, flour and butter in a large bowl with your fingertips. Add just enough water to make a stiff dough. Don’t over mix. Roll dough into small (3/4-inch) balls.  Place on a greased cookie sheet and bake about 15 minutes, until lightly browned. Makes about 20.
