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.
