Cabot Cheese Cookies
Cheese Glorious Cheese! Can't get enough of you, moment on the lips lifetime on the hips! Damn it!
My intention was to make cheese straws but that just did not work out, they ended up looking like big fat cheese fingers!
So I decided to make cheese cookies, they pretty much look like cookies too. My son came home from school got excited thinking that I made actual cookies. He unlike his mother is not a fan of cheese, what a little weird-o :)
My Auntie Margaret makes a wonderful cheese cracker that I have shared with you all on the blog a bit back, they too are wonderful.
These cheese cookies are very good, light and fluffy.
Here is what you will need:
8oz block of seriously sharp cheddar cheese made by Cabot, shredded
1 3/4 Cup Flour
1 1/2 sticks of unsalted butter, I used Land O Lakes
1/2 Teaspoon Paprika
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Hot Sauce, I used Sriracha
Nuts of your choice, I had pistachios on hand & used those
How to make them:
Mix your wet ingredients in a food processor
Mix your dry ingredients in another bowl, then add to the mixture in the food processor
Once this is combined roll into a ball and wrap with saran wrap, pop that into the fridge for 30 minutes.
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees
Divide the huge cheese ball into smaller 1 1/2 - 2 inch balls
Place them on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet about 2 inches or more apart
Press a nut into the top of your cookie and bake for 10 minutes
Lay them out on a cooling rack.
