Pulse the flour with the cornstarch, sugar, chipotle pepper and salt in a food processor. Add the butter and cheese; pulse until the mixture comes together (add up to 3tbsp (45 mL) water if necessary). Divide the dough into two portions and form into a rectangular log, about 1-inch (2.5 cm) thick by 2-inches (5 cm) wide. Chill for at least 1 hour or up to 2 days.

Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C) and arrange the racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven. Slice the logs into 1/8 inch (3 mm) thick slices. Place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheets.

Bake, rotating the trays halfway through baking, for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden around the edges. Cool completely on a rack.
