Cheddar Cheese Snaps

I had this recipe posted along with another Cheese recipe and it was difficult to locate it on the Blog. I decided to re post it alone.
Here's my recipe from 1980. I used to make these every year for New Year's Eve.






The Dough will be very crumbly but it comes together when you form the balls.







Cheese Snaps:

1 pound of Sharp Cheddar Cheese, grated
2 sticks of butter, room temperature
3 C Flour
1 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Cayenne Pepper
1 C Chopped Pecans

Combine the first 5 ingredients on a stand mixer with a paddle attachment and mix well.
Add Pecans
Divide the dough into thirds.
Form each third into small 1 1/2" diameter logs on a sheet of parchment paper.
Wrap tightly and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Slice the rolls into 1/4 " slices
Arrange 1 1/2" apart on a baking sheet
Bake for 18 - 20 minutes
Transfer to paper towels to cool
Store in air tight containers

Enjoy!
Peace in the Kitchen!
