For some reason no matter how new the bottle is its always half used, and no matter how long you've had it you never seem to use all of it.
I don't know what it is about sriracha that makes me want to put it on everything. Everything, I say, from fried eggs tomac-n-cheese to sandwiches.. burns like the devils hands.
but let me tell you, burning off all your taste buds never felt so freakin' good.

Place butter in freezer for 15 minutes. When ready to use, remove and cut both into small pieces.
In the bowl of a food processor, combine flour and salt(or cheese) by pulsing 3 to 4 times. Add butter and pulse 5 to 6 times until texture looks mealy.
Remove lid of food processor and spritz surface of mixture thoroughly with water. Replace lid and pulse 5 times. Add more water and pulse again until mixture holds together when squeezed.
Place mixture in large zip-top bag, squeeze together until it forms a ball, and then press into a rounded disk and refrigerate for 30 minutes or until ready to roll out.
after rolling out the dough everything is easy-peasy, place apple slices in the pan as orderly or haphazardly as you wish, remember messy pies taste just as good as picture perfect ones!
Top with sugar, cinnamon and dot with butter. Fold the extra pie dough over the edges and get ready to bake.
bake at 400 degrees for approximately 40 minutes, or until crust is golden brown and tempting enough to stick your fingers in the oven and grab a chunk of it... DON"T though, it hurts, ask me how I know.
Now the only thing you need is a little ice cream, and maybe if youre feeling civilized; a fork.

Roll out cookie dough on floured counter to about 1/4 inch thickness and cut into desired shapes(I used a small glass as my cookie cutter, why? cause i don't own real cookie cutters yet. santa? keep that in mind).
Anytime i'm rolling out something chocolate flavored I usually mix the flour for dusting the counter with a little cocoa powder, I just don't like the floury-ness thats left on the cookies when using plain flour.
These cookies don't spread, at all, so don't worry about loading up the baking trays before baking 8-10 minutes until edges are firm and centers are set but still soft.
Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
