  • 1 ½ cups All Purpose Wheat Flour
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 cups finely shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup unsalted butter softened
  • Coarse kosher salt


  • COMBINE flour, salt and cayenne pepper in food processor fitted with chopping blade. Cover and pulse a few times to blend ingredients. Add cheese and butter. Pulse until dough forms. Wrap dough in plastic wrap. Chill 30 minutes.
  • HEAT oven to 350°F. Divide dough in half. Roll out one half to ⅛-inch thickness on flat surface. Cut into 1-inch squares using a pizza cutter. Sprinkle lightly with kosher salt, if desired. Make a small hole in center of each cracker using a metal or wooden skewer. Place crackers on ungreased baking sheets using turner. Repeat with remaining dough.
  • BAKE 12 to 13 minutes or until crackers begin to turn light golden brown. Cool on baking sheet 3 minutes. Remove to wire rack to cool completely. Store in airtight container.
  • If you do not have a food processor, dough ingredients can be mixed by hand in large bowl, then kneaded on flat surface until well blended. Dough will be very stiff.
