Mini processor
mini scoop


  • 32 grams Stirling Creamery salted butter ~2 ½ tablespoon, cold
  • 94 grams all-purpose flour ¾ cup
  • ¼ teaspoon Diamond Crystal fine kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne optional
  • 113 grams shredded cheddar cheese 1 cup, I used marble cheddar
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • ½ teaspoon nigella seeds optional


  • In the bowl of a 3-cup food processor, pulse the butter with the flour, salt, pepper and cayenne (if using). Form a crumble.
  • Pulse in the cheese, then add the yolk (and the nigella seeds, if using) and process til a dough forms. Pat dough into a disk and wrap with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 375ºF. Scoop dough into small balls (~13 grams each) and flatten with the bottom of a flat glass or a fork.
  • Bake on a parchment-lined sheet for 20 minutes or so.
