Just stumbled upon this recipe. Made it with a few pinches more salt, some freshly ground pepper, and I used some cold water in step two to help the dough come together, like with a pie crust. I am very pleased with the result!

I made these for a party and they were a big hit. I used a good-quality New York smoked cheddar, extra sharp. They were extremely easy to make. Thanks so much.
