  • 1 cup Living NOW Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour
  • 8 ounces Cabot Alpine Cheddar, Cabot Hot Habanero Cheddar or Cabot Seriously Sharp, shredded(about 2 cups)

  • 4 tablespoons cold butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons cold water


  1. Begin by combining flour, cheese, cold butter, and salt in a food processor. Pulse until a sand-like texture has been created. Add water 1 tablespoon at a time until your dough forms. It will look like this.

  2. Refrigerate your dough for about a half hour. At that time, remove half the dough from the refrigerator and allow the other half to continue to chill (grab it when you need it). Roll your dough until you reach the desired thickness, about 1/3″ thick. I recommend flouring your surface first so they don’t stick. The kids loved helping with this part!

  3. If you want, you can even add smiley faces. Mine kinda melted together when they baked, but you can see some.

  4. Bake for about 15 – 20 minutes, depending upon the thickness of your dough and how browned you want them to be along the edges. You will have to work in batches to bake all of them.
