Homemade Cheese Goldfish From Miss Anthropist's Kitchen

July 28, 2011

We are familiar with the Pepperidge Farm's white and orange package containing fish shaped crackers.  It was a classic childhood snack that I still like munching on until this day.  While doing my daily tour of different food blogs, I came across this posting by Miss Anthropist's Kitchen.  She turns this store bought snack into a homemade one.  She even shows the reader how to make a fish cookie cutter without spending a lot of money.  This is a fun project to do with your kids and a great snack to pack in their lunches when they go back to school.  Click the link below to read the recipe and cookie cutter instructions.

Homemade Goldfish


1 cup(s) all-purpose flour

4 tablespoon(s) cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces (I used salted butter, but didn’t add any salt afterward)

8 ounce(s) grated extra-sharp Cheddar cheese (around 2 cups). Note: you can experiment with other cheeses. Some people have tried this and loved the results!

3/4 teaspoon(s) salt

1/8 teaspoon onion powder (note: this is optional since it isn’t part of the original recipe, but I decided to add anyway since I used it)

1/2 teaspoon(s) fresh-ground pepper

1 teaspoon baking powder
