  • 8 ounces sharp Cheddar, finely grated
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour 
  • 4 tablespoons Brooklyn Buttery Sriracha butter, cut into pieces 
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt 
  • Pinch of cayenne 
  • 3 tablespoons ice water


Put the Cheddar, flour, Brooklyn Buttery Sriracha butterbutter, salt, seasoned salt and cayenne in a food processor and pulse until the mixture resembles sand. Add the ice water and pulse until the dough comes together. Form the dough into a ball, wrap in plastic and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat.

Roll out the dough to 1/4-inch thickness and cut into squares with a pizza cutter. Use a wooden skewer to poke a small hole in the center of each square. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet and bake until golden brown, 15 to 17 minutes. Allow to cool before packing up.
