Winnie's Cheese Cookies

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Frau Frau

These savory cookies have always been a favorite of mine. They are great appetizers, since they can be made ahead, but I eat them as snacks too. In Vermont I have access to great flavored Cabot cheese which I like to use to give these some variety. Onion-Chive and Habanero both work well. This recipe came from my grandmother, Winnie.

Tabassco in cookies??? These were nice and crisp and tasted fine but they just did not seem like a cookie to me. I may try some variations next time. I like the cheese.
