  • 2 sticks soft butter 1 cup
  • 1 pound sharp cheddar
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1/4 teaspoon dijon mustard2
  • Tablespoons dry mustard
  • 1/4 cup mustard seeds brown or yellow
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour plus additional for dusting


  • Blend together butter, cheese, and yolk in a food processor until smooth. Add remaining ingredients and pulse until just combined. (If you have a small processor, divide butter mixture after blending and pulse with remaining ingredients in 2 batches.) Transfer dough (It will be very soft) to a bowl and chill, covered, 15 minutes.
  • Halve dough, then shape each half into a 12-inch log on a lightly floured surface. Wrap logs in wax paper and foil, then chill until firm, at least 4 hours.
  • Put oven racks in upper and lower thirds of the oven and preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Unwrap logs and cut into 1/8-inch-thick slices with a sharp thin knife, then arrange slices about 1 inch apart on baking sheets. Bake in batches, switching the position of sheets halfway through baking, until pale golden. Transfer crackers to racks to cool, about 5 minutes. Line sheets with clean parchment between batches. NOTE: I bake about 1 to 2 minutes longer to get a golden brown finish.
