1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary or 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons water
In large bowl, beat butter with electric mixer until creamy. Add cheese, flour, rosemary, salt and pepper; mix until combined well but still crumbly. Add water; mix until dough pulls away from sides of bowl. Flatten dough into a disk; wrap tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 30 minutes.

Bake 15 to 17 minutes or until crackers are slightly golden at the edges. Cool 3 to 4 minutes on pan; transfer to cooling rack and cool completely.
