  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) unsalted butter cold
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried minced garlic
  • 1 cup white all-purpose flour
  • 4-5 tablespoons heavy whipping cream not whipped
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • Optional: coarse sea salt


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a large baking sheet with nonstick spray and then lightly flour the surface. Set aside.
  • Cube the butter into 8 equal cubes.
  • In a small blender (I use a Twister jar with my Blendtec) or food processor, pulse the Parmesan cheese and butter until crumbly.
  • Add in the salt, pepper, paprika, dried minced garlic, and half of the flour. Pulse.
  • Add the rest of the flour and 4 tablespoons heavy whipping cream. Pulse and add the last tablespoon if needed.
  • Remove the mixture onto a sheet of plastic wrap or wax paper.
  • Pour the Italian seasoning on top and knead for 1-2 minutes or until the dough comes together completely.
  • Place another piece of plastic wrap or wax paper on top and roll out the dough to 1/8th-1/4th inch thickness (according to personal preference).
  • Transfer the dough to the prepared baking sheet.
  • Using a super sharp knife, perforate the dough to make lines for the crackers. (Don't cut all the way through the dough).
  • Bake for 7-10 minutes or until lightly browned at the edges. Sprinkle with coarse salt if desired.
  • Remove and allow to cool for 3-5 minutes.
  • Remove the dough using a spatula. Break into the crackers.
  • Enjoy with some delicious veggies and a Marzetti Veggie Dip!


High quality cheese is really the secret to the best flavor on these crackers!
