Cheese Cookies

Some good friends of ours threw a Christmas party last year and made these cookies for the event. They were so yummy that I had to make some of my own!

Here is the recipe for these yummy bites!

Cheese Cookies

1 pound sharp cheddar cheese, grated (room temperature)

2 cups plain flour

½ pound butter, melted

Dash salt

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (or to taste)

Sprinkle flour on cheese and pour on melted butter. Add salt and cayenne pepper to taste. (Note: these are a little hotter after baked, so don’t put too much pepper in the dough.) Knead together by hand until well blended. Roll into quarter-size balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten with fork. Bake at 300° for 30 minutes. Yield: About 100. A great cheese straw replacement.
