For anyone who loves & craves American Cheese, this recipe will certainly be well worth your efforts! It is the perfect ingredient for grilled cheese sandwiches or your own, homemade baked mac & cheese!
Carefully line a small loaf pan [5"L X 3"W X 2"H] with waxed paper, parchment paper or plastic wrap, leaving excess to cover top of pan. If using paper, fold and crease neatly, as if "wrapping" a package.
"Bloom" gelatine in a small bowl with warm water for about 5 minutes.
In a food processor, combine cheddar cheese, Parmesan cheese, annatto, milk powder, cream of tartar, kosher salt and white pepper. Pulse a few times until evenly mixed.
Bring Half & Half® to a boil. Remove from heat and add gelatine.
With food processor running on "low", slowly pour in Half & Half® and combine with cheese mixture until smooth and silky; about 1 minute.
Place cheese mixture in loaf pan. "Drop" pan squarely on counter top a few times to compact and remove any air bubbles.
Cover top with liner and chill for no less than 3 hours; over night is best. Enjoy!
