Cheese Cookies

These are actually a savory cookie rather than a dessert cookie, and make great appetizers.

¼ cup butter
½ cup flour
1 cup grated cheddar
1/8 tsp. salt
1 large dash cayenne pepper
½ tsp. Dry mustard

1. Mix butter, flour, grated cheddar, and salt together in a bowl.

2. Add the the dash of cayenne pepper and the dry mustard and incorporate.

3.  Roll the mixture into a log, then chill for ½ hour (or freeze until needed) and slice into1/2 inch thick “cookies.”

4. Bake the cookies at 350° for 10 to 15 minutes on a cookie sheet.

I often double the recipe for cocktail parties as these go over quite well.
