Goldfish Squared? or Goldfish Goldfish? Name this Recipe!

OK What kid can resist yummy goldfish crackers? We decided to put this question to the test when we cooked fish number 34, the goldfish.

Clay named this recipe goldfish goldfish, Dave named it goldfish squared., we'd love to hear your ideas...

Here is what you need to make this.
  •  Goldfish
  • 1 C flour
  • 8 oz of shredded cheddar cheese
  • pinch of salt
  • dash of pepper
  • 4 T of super cold butter cubed
  • fish cookie cutter
Feel free to make this without the goldfish if you just want yummy crackers...

Pre-Cook the goldfish, we fried ours...

Get a food processor and throw in all the ingredients and the fish and pulse it a few times to mix it well. By now the goldfish should be mixed in nicely.

Now this part is super important, drip in super cold water and pulse, add the water slowly a tsp at a time. Pulse and add water until the dough rolls into balls and rides the blade.
Now take the dough out and wrap it up and stick it in the fridge for at least 20 minutes.

While that is chilling pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees.

Now the fun part!
Roll the dough out parchment paper or a well floured counter and cut fish out.

We couldn't find a fish cookie cutter, but we had a coffin shaped one and just bent it into a fish shape.

Place all the cut out fish onto a pizza stone or a cookie sheet  and cook for 12-20 minute or until they are crispy.

Now share them with friends, we shared them during a speaking gig at Wiggin Library in Stratham, they weren't too bad and everyone tried them. They'd be great without the goldfish!
