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

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.
