Cheddar Pepper Crisps

1 3/4 cups flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup cold butter
1 1/2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons vinegar
Coarsely ground pepper

In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Cut in butter until crumbly. Stir in cheese. Sprinkle with water and vinegar. Toss with a fork until a ball forms. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and chill for 1 hour.

Divide into six portions. On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion of dough into an 8-inch circle. Cut into 8 wedges, and place on greased baking sheets. Sprinkle dough lightly with pepper.

Bake at 375 degrees for 10 to 14 minutes until golden brown and crisp. Cool on wire racks. Store in an airtight container.

Makes about 4 dozen.
