So I was roaming around on Pinterest the other day and I found this yummy recipe for Homemade Cheez-its and I HAD to try it! Thanks to Dish & Tell for the recipe.. It was great and so easy! Here is the recipe for those of you who want to try it at home for yourselves.Homemade Cheez-its  Homemade Cheese Crackers

Combine the flour, butter, cheese, salt, and cayenne in a medium bowl. Stir until crumbly. Stir in water, one tablespoon at a time, until dough comes together like a pie crust would.

5. Use a pizza cutter to trim the dough into a rectangle and then cut it into 2 inch squares.
