  • 4 1/2 ounces Shropshire blue cheese
  • 1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt


  1. Place all ingredients in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until a dough has formed. Transfer dough to work surface and shape into a disk. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled, at least 1 hour.

  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a nonstick baking mat; set aside.

  3. Roll out dough on a floured work surface to 1/8-inch-thick. Cut dough into desired shapes using 1 1/2-to-4-inch cookie cutters, rerolling scraps as you go.

  4. Transfer dough to prepared baking sheet. Bake until crisp and dark orange, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer crackers to a wire rack to cool.
