Vegan, Gluten Free Goldfish Crackers

A huge shout out of thanks to Chef Chloe, who originally crafted the vegan version of this recipe.  I make my own version of gluten free all purpose flour, but you could use one of the ready made versions.  Bob's Red Mill makes one that I've heard is good; I've also heard that the King Arthur's version works well.  Or, you can make your own!  (I have a lot of GF flours to work with, so mine is quite a 'whole grain' version, LOL)

The texture is not like a Pepperidge Farm Goldfish Cracker; it has more of a crumbly texture.  That being said, and even though the taste isn't perfect, Peter and I couldnt stop eating them.  (The kids?  They havent fallen in love with them like we have, but it's just one batch, so I'll keep working on it!).  From a shape standpoint, mine look more like spades, thanks to my little cookie cutters.

Vegan, Gluten Free "Goldfish" Crackers

In a food processor, mix together:
1 cup gluten free flour, tbsp nutritional yeast flakes (I use KAL), 4 shakes of minced onion (I'm guessing 1tbsp???), 1/4tsp garlic powder, 1/8tsp tumeric, 1tsp salt, 1/2tsp black pepper.

Pulse in, until crumbly:
5tbsp vegan butter (I use soy-free Earth Balance)

Add in:
3tbsp cold water

Pulse until dough forms.  Put the dough in the center of wax paper and use your hand to flatten it to an eighth of an inch or so. Cut out the shakes and place on a greased baking sheet.  Bake at 375 for 9 minutes.  You dont want the crackers to brown; they will be a light orange and have a sweet, buttery, cheesy, nutty flavor.
