  • 8 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, shredded (2 cups)
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4- 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
In a large mixing bowl combine shredded cheese and butter; bring to room temperature (about 1 hour). Beat with an electric mixer until well combined. Stir in flour, salt, and red pepper. Divide the dough in half. Shape dough into two 7-inch logs. Wrap and chill logs for at least 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 350 degree F. With a knife or a crinkle cutter, slice the cheese logs into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Place slices on ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 15 minutes. Store in an airtight container up to 3 days. Makes about 4-1/2 dozen crackers.

Make Ahead Tip

  • Prepare cheese logs; cover and chill until just before serving time or up to 3 days. Slice and bake as directed.
