Cheese Crackers

Serves: Makes 12 to 16 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 8 ounces sharp Cheddar cheese, grated
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • About 2 cups pecan halves


Procedures:

These little savory crackers—really more like cookies—are great passed with the salad course or set out on a table with olives and nuts while your guests enjoy a drink before dinner. I also like to make batches to offer as a tasty hostess gift, wrapped up in cellophane on a cute plate.
  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.


  2. Combine the butter, cheese, salt, and cayenne in a large bowl and stir until thoroughly blended. Stir in the flour and knead gently but quickly with your hands until the mixture is firm and smooth.


  3. Roll the dough into balls, using about 2 teaspoons for each. Set the balls on the baking sheet about 1½ inches apart. Bake for 10 minutes. Carefully press a pecan half onto each cracker. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes longer, until the crackers and pecans are lightly browned. Let cool a few minutes on the pan, then transfer to a wire rack to cool.
