  • 2 cups extra sharp cheddar cheese, grated
  • 3 Tablespoons butter, cut into small cubes
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour (you can use a gluten free flour too)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/16 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional) (a small pinch)
  • 2 Tablespoons cold milk
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

  2. Place everything but the milk in a food processor and process until it looks like coarse corn meal.

  3. While the processor is still running, pour in the milk. Process until it forms a soft dough.

  4. Lay the dough on a piece of wax paper or parchment paper and roll to about 1/8 inch thick. I start by placing the parchment on the top as well to keep it from sticking to the rolling pin.

  5. You can use cookie cutters to cut shapes – or you can use a knife to cut leaf shapes or squares. You can also roll balls and flatten them.

  6. Place the shapes on a cookie sheet that is covered with parchment paper and bake for ten minutes, until the edges begin to brown.

  7. Remove from the oven, cool slightly, then turn and bake an additional 5 minutes.

  8. Allow to cool completely before serving.
