Step 1

In a medium bowl, knead together butter, all-purpose flour, Cheddar cheese and dry onion soup mix. Divide into two equal portions. Form each portion into a log shape. Wrap with wax paper. Chill at least 1 hour in the refrigerator, until firm.

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Cut the log shapes into slices approximately 1/8-inch thick.

Arrange slices in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Bake 12 to 14 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly browned.
