Recipe by MARIA MAC *
This savory shortbread is nice served along side a cheese and fruit platter for something different. I double the recipe. These go fast. Amount depends on what size you cut the cookies.
- 3⁄4 cup butter, softened
- 1⁄4 teaspoon dry mustard
- 1⁄2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
- 1 1⁄2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, grated
- 1 1⁄4 cups flour
Directions See How It's Made
- Combine butter, mustard, and pepper in food processor, and whirl to combine. Add cheese and whirl again to mix.
- Add flour and pulse just until blended.
- Roll dough out on a lightly floured surface, to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut with desired small cookie cutter and transfer to cookie sheet.
- Bake at 350 degrees F. for about 20 minutes, until lightly browned on the bottom.
