  • 1 cup gluten free flour blend * see note
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 8 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 tablespoons butter COLD!
  • 1-2 tablespoons water


  • Preheat the oven to 350º F.
  • Add all of the ingredients to a food processor and pulse until it forms a dough ball.
  • Remove the dough ball and place it onto a large piece of parchment paper.
  • Use a rolling pin to roll out the dough to ⅛ to ¼ inches thick. Take a goldfish cookie cutter and press it into the dough. use the back handle of a knife to pres the goldfish out of the cookie cutter if needed.
  • Spread out the goldfish and repeat until you work through the dough.
  • Take the dough scraps and wrap it in plastic. Place in the refrigerator to chill it again.
  • Sprinkle the goldfish lightly with salt.
  • Slide the parchment paper onto a cookie sheet. Bake the crackers for 8-10 minutes and remove from the oven to cool.
  • Repeat until you use up all of the dough. It took me 3 batches because you want the dough to be really cold.


  1. I have tested this recipe with King Arthur Measure for Measure GF and Bob's Red Mill 1 to 1 GF blend. That doesn't mean others will not work, I just have not tested other flours.
  2. If your gluten free flour blend doesn’t contain xanthan gum or guar gum, please add 1 teaspoon.
  3. I have not found a way to make this recipe dairy-free and still taste like goldfish crackers. Dairy-free cheese doesn't melt the same and it affects the cracker texture.
  4. These crackers will keep up to 3 days in an air-tight container.
