Three-Cheese Shortbreads

Three-Cheese Shortbreads created by Soup Lady

These are great paired with any kind of cream soup. My favourite is with a great cream of broccoli and cheese soup. The preparation time includes the time to refrigerate the dough.

  • Preheat the oven to 300°F.
  • Roll the dough out into a large 1/4-inch thick circle. Use a scalloped cookie cutter to cut out the shortbreads.

    I didn't know what to expect--but I was very pleasantly surprised by these. Instead of mozzarella, I used Asiago, and added some black pepper. The part about chillling in fridge for an hour--then the dough came out too hard to roll (did I do something wrong?)--but when it finally was soft enough, they cooked up beautifully. Kind of reminds us of Cheezits but better--with real cheese flavor. I'll make these again & again (but maybe not chill them). Oh, and I got about 10 - 2" cookies.

    These were pretty good. I did find that I was out of cayenne after I started making them, so I subbed chili powder. I will try these again with the cayenne, and possibly some other spices as well. I did have a bit of trouble rolling the dough out at first, but after sprinkled a bit of flour on my work surface it got easier. Overall these were quick, easy! Made for PAC Fall 2008

    I have been looking for a good recipe for a cheese "cookie" and I have finally found one. Great nibble with a nice glass of wine! Thanks for posting!
