Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter (room temperature)
  • 2 cups grated aged cheddar
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Pulse butter, cheddar, flour, salt, cayenne pepper, and paprika in a food processor until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add heavy cream; pulse until just combined.

  2. Divide dough into 4 pieces; shape into rectangles. Wrap each in plastic. Refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes.

  3. Working in batches, roll out each rectangle on a lightly floured surface to a 1/4-inch thickness, and cut into 1-inch squares. Transfer to a baking sheet leaving at least 1/4 inch between each. Refrigerate until chilled and firm, about 20 minutes. Bake until pale golden, 15 to 17 minutes.
