  • 1 cup sifted flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon dried, crumbled sage
  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 8 ounces finely grated sharp cheddar cheese


Heat oven to 350 degrees. Into a mixing bowl, sift flour, cayenne, and salt. Stir in sage and set aside.

In a standing mixer, cream butter. Add cheese until combined. On slow speed, add dry ingredients until thoroughly incorporated.

Scrape dough out onto lightly floured surface and roll into a log (2-inch diameter). Cover in plastic wrap and form a square roll. Chill at least 20 minutes.

Slice dough into thin squares (1/8-inch thickness). Place on ungreased baking sheet and bake 10 minutes or until crisp.

Make monograms or other decorations with extra pieces of dough.
