Cheddar Cheese Cookies

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Marg CaymanDesigns

A really nice change from all the sweet cookies out there. Can be used as a appetizer too. They need to chill for 1 hour before baking. I used to have a co-worker who I HAD to make these for every year at our Christmas party.

Wonderful little appetizers! Melting the butter and mixing everything together, rather than cutting the butter into the flour, was a change I welcomed. I did form them a bit different--rather than rolling them into balls, I formed into two logs, wrapped in plastic wrap, refrigerated for about an hour and a half, then cut into approxiately 1/4-inch rounds and baked on parchment paper. I added a little cayenne pepper to the dough to kick the flavor up a bit and baked in a convection oven at 350F for about 12 minutes. We loved them!
