Ingredients
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
  • 1 cup grated extra-sharp yellow Cheddar
  • 3/4 teaspoon smoked paprika, plus more for dusting
  • 1 pinch cayenne
  • Kosher salt
  • 4 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Combine the flour, Cheddar, smoked paprika, cayenne and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a food processor and pulse to combine. Add the butter and pulse until incorporated. Add the heavy cream and process until the dough forms a ball.

  • Lightly flour a sheet of parchment paper and place the dough on top. Shape the dough with your hands into a flat rectangle, then lightly flour the dough. Roll it out with a rolling pin until it is a little less than 1/4 inch thick (about a 12-by-9-inch rectangle). Cut the dough into squares or rectangles and carefully transfer to the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle the dough pieces with about 1/4 teaspoon more salt, gently pressing it into the surface, then dust very lightly with more smoked paprika. Bake until light golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Cool completely on a rack.
