Ingredients:

1/2 Cup Butter, at room temperature
1 Cup Grated Cheddar Cheese
1/3 Cup Grated Pepper Jack Cheese
1/3 Cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
1/3 Cup Grated Gruyere/swiss Cheese
1 Teaspoon Trader Joe's Hot Yuzu Sauce
1 Cup All-purpose Gluten-free Flour
1 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Black Pepper
1 Teaspoon Biber (red Pepper Flakes)
1 Cup Coarsely Chopped Pistachio Nuts

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350° and set out baking sheets with a non-stick baking mat on top of each.
  • Process butter, cheese and Yuzu sauce.  In a separate bowl combine flour, salt, black pepper, biber and pistachios.  Add to the cheese mixture and process until blended. 
  • Turn the dough onto a floured surface and divide in half.  Shape each half into a fairly evenly shaped log 1" in diameter.  Wrap in plastic and chill 'til firm.  (Freeze if going to keep more than 5 days)
  • Cut the chilled dough into 1/4-in. slices (easiest to do this with the Kyocera Micro-serrated Tomato Knife) and place them about 2 in. apart on the baking sheets.  Bake for 12 minutes, until golden around the edges.
  • Transfer to a rack to cool, then store in airtight container.
