Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350°.

  • Drain pimiento; pat dry with paper towels, and finely chop. Stir ground mustard and ground red pepper into flour. Gradually add chopped pimiento to flour mixture, tossing to coat.

  • Beat cheese, butter, and salt at medium speed with a heavy-duty electric stand mixer until blended. Gradually add flour mixture, beating just until combined.

  • Turn out onto a well-floured surface. Divide into 2 equal portions; flatten each into a square. Roll each square to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut with a 1 1/2-inch square cutter. Place 1 inch apart on parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Bake 15 to 20 minutes; cool on baking sheets on wire racks 30 minutes.
