White Cheddar Cheese and Rosemary Cookies

A Savory Cookie is delicious. I have a favorite vintage Cheddar Cheese Cracker recipe that my mother made in the 60's. I used to make them often. They're a great appetizer. This recipe is very similar so it's a debate whether they're Crackers or Cookies. You can decide and serve them as you wish.

White Cheddar Cheese and Rosemary Cookies.

Here's what you'll need:
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
Sheet Pans lined with Parchment Paper.
A 2" - 3" Plain Round or Scalloped Round Cookie Cutter.

1 3/4 C Flour
1/2 pound of White Cheddar Cheese, Grated.
1/2 tsp Salt
2 tsp finely Chopped Fresh Rosemary.
1/8 tsp Cayenne Pepper
16 TBS Butter, Cold and Cubed

In a Food Processor:
Flour
Cheese
Salt
Rosemary
Cayenne Pepper
Pulse to mix well.

Add:
Butter, a few pieces at a time until it forms a dough.
Remove and knead together by hand.
Cover with Plastic Wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Roll out the Dough on a lightly floured surface to 1/4" thick.
Cut out shapes with the Cookie Cutter.
Transfer to the Sheet Pan 1" apart.
Refrigerate again for 30 minutes.
Bake for 20 - 30 minutes.

Remove pan to a rack to cool for 5 minutes.
Transfer cookies to the rack and cool completely.

Enjoy!
Peace in the Kitchen!
