Ingredients

1/2 lb
sharp cheddar cheese (i've cheated and used the already shredded stuff)
1 stick
softened butter
3 dash(es)
hot red pepper sauce
1/4 tsp
salt
1 tsp
fresh dill or rosemary
1 c
unbleached all purpose flour

Step-By-Step

1Shred cheese with hand grater, then chop with knife. Really pulverize it!
2Beat together butter, cheese, pepper sauce and seasoning on high speed until creamy.
Lower the speed.
Mix in flour, 1/3 cup at a time.
It will be soft.
