Spicy Parmesan Cookies


Spicy Parmesan Cookies

This savory cookie is a nice change from all the sweet cookies.  Try it without the cayenne pepper also, if you don’t like spicy.

At first my husband wasn’t sure he liked them, but I found him with his hand in the cookie jar.  His comment – they’re addicting.

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, cut up into small chunks
  • 2 tablespoons milk

Place flour, cheese, cayenne pepper and butter in a food processor and process until well blended and mixture forms a ball.

Shape dough into a log, wrap in plastic wrap, and place in an airtight container.  Refrigerate at least 8 hours and up to 2 days.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Remove the dough from the wrapping, cut into 1/4-inch slices, and transfer to the prepared baking sheet.  Brush each slice with milk and bake until golden brown, 12 to 14 minutes.  Set aside to cool.

Makes 2 dozen.
