1 c all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
8 oz (2 c) finely grated cheddar cheese
1/2 c softened butter
Combine dry ingredients with a whisk. Add cheese and butter, and work with hands until a dough forms.
Transfer to a sheet of waxed paper. Form into a 1.5 inch diameter log; roll up tightly in paper. Refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Slice dough into 1/4-inch thick slices. Arrange 1 inch apart on baking sheets. Bake until edges are golden, 16 to 18 minutes; transfer crisps to a rack to cool.
