Yield: About 40 Crackers
From: Country Living Magazine

1 C           All-purpose flour
4 Tbsp    Cold, unsalted butter
8 oz         Extra sharp Cheddar cheese, grated
¾ tsp       Salt
½ tsp       Pepper, freshly ground
½ C          Peanut butter
1 Tbsp     Honey
Cayenne Pepper, to taste

Pulse flour, butter, cheese, 1/2 tsp salt, and pepper together until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Pulse in water 1 Tbsp at a time, until the dough forms a ball and rides the blade. Remove, wrap in plastic and chill for 20 minutes. (or up to 24 hours) Meanwhile, in a separate bowl, stir peanut butter, remaining 1/4 tsp salt, and honey together until smooth. If desired, stir in cayenne pepper for extra heat.  Cover with plastic wrap and set aside until ready to serve.

Heat oven to 350˚F. Line 2 baking pans with parchment paper and set aside. Roll the dough out ito 1/8th inch thickness. Cut out as many crackers as possible with a fish-shaped cookie cutter.  Place them 1 inch apart on the prepared baking pans. Bake until golden and crisp - 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer to cooling racks. Repeat with remaining dough and scraps. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.  Serve with peanut butter spread.
