Hello, Daring Bakers!
Big goldfish graham crackers. Before we begin, there are a few things you should know about this recipe: it only has four ingredients, the Homemade Goldfish geek it produces are lovely and large, and it’s so simple that my 19-month-old son, George, assisted me from start to finish (with lots of sampling).
All you’ll need is cheese, flour, water, and butter and I love knowing exactly what goes into my son’s snacks. To be honest, these are my snacks as well. (big goldfish graham crackers)

To make them look like their namesake, use the same cookie cutter I did and a toothpick or chopstick to make the eyes and mouth! (big goldfish graham crackers)
