Walnut Cheese Snaps

No recipe image available.These tasty walnut and cheese crisp snacks are reminiscent of a thin, savory shortbread.

Recipe Ingredients:

1/2 cup softened butter
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon each: baking powder, cayenne pepper and salt
1 cup finely grated, sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup finely chopped California Walnuts
2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Cooking Directions:

  1. In medium bowl, cream butter; set aside.
  2. In small bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, cayenne pepper and salt; stir into butter. Add cheddar cheese, walnuts and Parmesan cheese. Mix well using hands until soft dough forms. Shape mixture into two rolls. Wrap in plastic wrap; chill for at least 3 hours.
  3. Cut each roll into 1/8-inch thick slices. Place on baking sheet.
  4. Bake in a preheated oven at 350°F about 8 to 10 minutes or until a light golden brown. Remove from oven. Leave on baking sheet until just firm, lift onto wire rack to cool completely before storing in sealed containers.

Makes about 6 dozen snaps.
