1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature
4 ounces (1 cupish) freshly grated parmesan cheese (grated in a food processor)
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 teaspoon fresh thyme, minced
1. Place butter in the bowl of a electric mixer with the paddle attachment and mix until creamy, about one minute. With the mixer on low speed, add parmesan, thyme, salt and pepper and combine. Keep the mixer on low and add the flour and combine until the mixture is in large crumbles, about one minute. If the dough it too dry, add 1 teaspoon water.
2. Dump the dough onto a floured surface and press into a ball, then roll into a 9 inch log. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
At this point you can refrigerate the dough up to four days.
3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cut the log into 3/8-inch-thick rounds with a small sharp knife and place them on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper. Bake for 22 minutes until very lightly browned. Rotate the pan once during baking. Cool and serve at room temperature.
These will keep in an air tight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
