  • 2 cups cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp celery salt
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 8 oz cream cheese chilled and cut into cubes
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds


  • In a medium bowl add the cheddar cheese, flour, salt, garlic powder, sugar, celery salt and cayenne. Toss to coat the shredded cheese.
  • Add the cream cheese cubes and working with your hands, blend all ingredients to form a dough that holds together.
  • Shape dough into a log roughly 12 inches long and wrap in plastic wrap. Freeze for 15 minutes. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Remove from plastic wrap and sprinkle sesame seeds on all sides, pressing to adhere.
  • Carefully slice into 1/8" to 1/4" rounds and place on a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown and crisp. Allow to come to room temperature before serving or storing in an airtight container for up to 7 days.
