Cheese Dollars

DSCI0373

I made these Cheese dollars to bring on the road for our wine tour! Cheese and wine obviously pair great together, but Cheese-n-Crackers aren’t easy in a limo, and I sure wasn’t going to settle on a box of Cheese-itz! They do taste very similar to them I have to say!

Make sure to spray the baking sheet well because they do stick pretty good!

Cheese Dollars:  

 Ingredients:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • pinch fresh ground pepper
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne
  • 1/2 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated pepper jack
  • 1 stick butter

Steps:

  1. Soften the butter and cheese. In a mixing bowl cream the cheese with butter until well mixed.
  2. On a low speed, add the flour, salt-n-pep and beat until well blended.
  3. Scrap the dough onto a piece of plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, ~30 mins.
  4. Form dough into three 1-inch diameter rolls.
  5. Wrap each roll in plastic wrap (and then foil if freezing) and refrigerate up to 3 days or freeze up to 3 months.
  6. Preheat oven to 425F
  7. Slice the dough into 1/4 inch slices.
  8. Place slices 1/2 inch apart on sprayed cookie sheets
  9. Bake 8-10 mins or until very lightly browned.
  10. Transfer dollars onto wire racks to cool.
