  • 1 ¼ cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons Old Bay Seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 12 tablespoons butter
  • 4 ounces sharp cheddar cheese
  • 4 ounces salted pretzels 1/2 cup crushed


  • In a food processor, add flour, Old Bay and salt and blend. Add butter and pulse until the dough forms clumps. Add cheese and crushed pretzels and use quick pulses to blend.
  • Turn dough onto work surface and knead it together. Divide into two equal portions and form into two 9 inch logs. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least an hour.
  • Preheat oven to 350º and line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Slice logs into 1/2 inch slices and place on prepared pan.
  • Bake for 19-21 minutes, rotate pan 1/2 way through. They should be golden across the top and firm. Allow to rest on a rack for 5 minutes and then transfer to a rack to cool completely.


You can freeze the dough after it has been formed into logs
