Salty Cheese Cookies/Crackers - Saturday Blog Showcase

Welcome to this weeks Saturday Blog Showcase.

 Lori of All That Splatters and I are sharing hosting duties.  This week is is my turn.  
If you would like to join us:
  1. Make a recipe  from a  fellow blogger's website and share the recipe on your blog with a link back to the blog where you found the recipe. 
  2. Add the Saturday Blog Showcase logo to your post.
  3. On Friday night or Saturday, link your post to Mr. Linky.
The blog that I'm am showcasing this week is Petra's at Zoom Yummy. I found this recipe for Salty Cheese Cookies on her blog last year. I originally found a picture of Zoom Yummy's Salted Cheese Cookies on Tastespotting. Unfortunately the link to the recipe is no longer available on her site but you will find lots of other wonderful recipes.

I made these once before because I knew that Matthew would love them.  And I was right.   So when he and Dana where here this week I made them again.

I bought a new set of cookie cutters and used them to cut the crackers into different shapes.
Cheddar Cheese Crackers
=======================
Salty Cheese Cookies -
Adapted from: http://zoomyummy.wordpress.com/2009/09/14/salty-cheese-cookies/


1 1/2 cups  all-purpose flour
1 cup  butter
3/4 cup  grated aged cheddar cheese
salt
pepper
cayenne pepper
mustard powder

1 egg beaten with teaspoon of water
sea salt

Heat oven to 350°F.  Line baking sheet with parchment paper.

Mix by hand or add flour and butter to food processor and pulse to cut in butter.  Add seasonings and pulse until just before dough comes together.  Add cheddar cheese and pulse again just to form a ball.

Roll dough out to desired thickness.  about 1/8" for crackers, 1/4" for cookies.

Cut into squares or rounds. Cut criss cross pattern on each cracker using a sharp knife. Brush with egg wash. Sprinkle with a little sea salt. Bake until golden approximately 15 minutes.

Option:  Form dough around pimento filled  olives, brush with egg wash and bake.

  1. I know I would LOVE these little tidbits, Ann. Anything salty & cheese is right up my alley!
    They almost sound similar to the Southern version of cheese straws. I'll have to compare recipes but its late right now & I'm too sleepy.

    Happy Sat. Blog Showcase!
    Thanks for hosting us this week. :D

    fondly,
    Rett

  5. Arlette, No, it isn't too late to submit Saturday night. Even Sunday if that works for you.

    Also, you can make the recipe any day of the week. It doesn't have to be prepared Friday or Saturday.

  6. Those have to be among the BEST looking cheese cracker~cookies I have ever seen. Love them wrapped around the pimento stuffed olives.I'm thinking these maybe be the perfect tidbit to take to a party we're going to. I'll certainly WOW everyone with these.

  7. Thank you for posting this, I found these last year on zoom yummy's blog and made them for my boyfriend, he LOVED them. He is in the process of finishing up the end of his semester and working on a lot of papers, so I thought that I'd make them as a little treat. For a moment I thought maybe I had lost the recipe since it's no longer available, but thanks to you the salty cheese cookies will live on in infamy! (At least in our house)
