Special equipment:
a 2 1/2-inch round cutter
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. For the egg wash, add the egg and 1 tablespoon water to a small bowl and whisk to combine. Set aside.
  3. Add the cheese, flour, thyme, pepper and salt to a food processor fitted with the blade attachment. Pulse until the cheese is broken up and incorporated with the flour. Add the butter and pulse until the butter is smaller than a pea, about 10 to 15 pulses. Stream in the water, a tablespoon at a time, while pulsing. After two tablespoons, remove the lid and check your dough, it should look like wet sand and hold together when you press it together in your hand. If it doesn’t hold together, place the lid back on and pulse in another tablespoon or two of water.
  4. Once the dough is the right consistency, turn it out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead it a few times, just until it comes together. Lightly flour a rolling pin and roll dough out until 1/4-inch-thick. Using a 2 1/2-inch round cutter, cut out cookies and place them 1-inch apart on the prepared baking sheet. Gather the dough scraps and lightly knead together. Continue the process of rolling out the dough and cutting cookies until all of the dough is used. Brush the cookies with the egg wash.
  5. Bake until the cookies are lightly golden and puffed, 12 to 14 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool for at least 10 minutes before serving.
