  • 8 ounces sharp cheddar shredded (I used Tillamook)
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1/2 stick butter softened and cut into 4 pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt plus more for sprinkling
  • 1 cup unbleached flour
  • 2 tablespoons ice cold water


  • Combine the cheeses, garlic powder, butter, and salt in a mixer using the dough paddle. The dough will be very crumbly.
  • Mix in the flour and slowly add in the water (make sure you use very cold water!) until the dough is the consistency of a pie dough.
  • Divide the dough into halves and form into discs. Wrap in plastic wrap and place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 375 F.
  • Place dough on parchment paper or silicon mat and roll out to a 1/8" thickness. Try to make the dough as square as possible. Using a pastry wheel, cut the dough into 1" squares. Poke a hole in the center of each square with a toothpick and transfer to un-greased baking sheets.
  • Bake 10-15 minutes or until puffed up and golden brown. Remove to cooling racks and sprinkle with additional salt if desired.
