1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature

1 cup Brennan’s sharp cheddar cheese, grated

Description
These flavorful cheese crackers are a crunchy and cheesy addition to any party!

Preparation
Preheat oven to 350 and line cookie sheets with parchment. Put flour, butter, cheese, cayenne, paprika and salt into food processor and pulse till completely blended and ball forms. Taste for seasoning and adjust. Add panko and process in small pulses (as few as possible) to incorporate panko into the dough. Scoop small balls of dough (about 1/2 teaspoon) and roll in the palm of your hand. Place on cookie sheet and flatten with fork or spatula. (You can also roll the dough out about 1/2 inch thick and use small cookie cutters.) Sprinkle the tops with smoked paprika and more salt if desired. 

Bake at 350 for 15 minutes until the bottom is lightly browned and the crispettes are cooked through. (I like these best when they are on the well-done side, so you may bake them a little longer–just watch carefully so they don’t burn.) Remove from cookie sheet and cool on wire rack.
