Cheesy Sun Crisps
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Cheddar cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup (1 stick) margarine or butter, softened
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup uncooked quick oats
2/3 cup roasted, salted sunflower kernels
Beat cheeses, margarine and 3 tablespoons water in large bowl until well blended. Add flour and salt; mix well. Stir in oats and sunflower kernels; mix until well combined.
Shape dough into a 12-inch-long roll, and wrap securely in plastic film. Refrigerate about 4 hours (dough may be stored up to 1 week in refrigerator).
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease cookie sheets. Cut roll into 1/8 to 1/4-inch thick slices; flatten each slice slightly. Place on prepared cookie sheets about 1/2 inch apart. Bake 8 to 9 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Remove immediately and cool on wire rack. Makes 5 dozen crackers.
