- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup butter, cubed
- 2 tablespoons water
- Place the first six ingredients in a food processor; cover and pulse to blend. Add butter; cover and pulse until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. While processing, gradually add water just until moist crumbs form.
- Shape dough into a disk; wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes or until easy to handle.
- On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to 1/8-in. thickness. Cut with a floured 2-in. cookie cutter. Place 1 in. apart on parchment paper-lined baking sheets.
