  • 8 oz cheddar cheese cut in chunks
  • 4 oz soft unsalted butter cut in chunks
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp hot sauce or a pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup flour


  • Process cheese until it resembles a coarse meal, approximately 30 seconds.
  • Add butter, hot sauce (or pepper) and salt; process until smooth.
  • Scrape down the bowl and add the flour. Pulse until it just starts to go into a ball.
  • Chill dough until it’s firm enough to handle—about 30 minutes.
  • Divide dough into 3 equal parts and shape into logs about 1 1/2-inches in diameter; wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate about 2-3 hours until very firm.
  • To bake: Preheat oven to 400 F/200 C. Line a baking sheet with parchment. Cut dough into 1/8-inch slices and place on prepared sheets about 2-inches apart. Bake about 10 minutes or until light golden around the edges. Cool on sheet for about 1 minute, then transfer to a rack to cool completely.
  • Unbaked logs may be frozen for future use. Makes about 100 cookies.
