I love this snack. And if a lunkhead like me can make this - anyone can!!
- 1/2 lb
- sharp cheddar cheese (i've cheated and used the already shredded stuff)
- 1 stick
- softened butter
- 3 dash(es)
- hot red pepper sauce
- 1/4 tsp
- 1 tsp
- fresh dill or rosemary
- 1 c
- unbleached all purpose flour
1Shred cheese with hand grater, then chop with knife. Really pulverize it!
2Beat together butter, cheese, pepper sauce and seasoning on high speed until creamy.
Lower the speed.
Mix in flour, 1/3 cup at a time.
It will be soft.
3Transfer dough to wax paper.
Shape it into 2 logs about 1 1/2 inches in diameter.
Refrigerate till firm -- about 2 hours.
4Preheat oven to 325°.
Line baking sheet with parchment or spray with non-stick spray.
Cut logs into 1/4 inch slices
Bake until slightly brown and almost crisp -- about 15 minutes
