Spicy Cheddar Pennies w/Pecans - TNT!

Wanted to share this with everyone - it's my latest experiment!

SPICY CHEDDAR PENNIES W/PECANS



Makes about 20 dz.



1 stick unsalted butter

1 pound very sharp cheddar, shredded, at room temp.

1 ˝ cups AP flour

˝ cup rice flour

˝ tsp salt

˝ tsp cayenne (more or less, to your liking)

˝ cup very finely chopped pecans



Heat oven to 325; line baking sheets with parchment.



In food processor, cream butter til smooth; add cheese, process til all mixed together. Add flours, salt, cayenne, and pulse til it forms a ball.



Remove from processor, work in pecans with your hands. Divide dough in 4ths; divide each 4th into 2 strips, and roll out under hands to make a ‘rope’ about the diameter of a penny. Repeat with all; place on a flat sheet and chill 30 minutes.



Cut each rope into slices about 1/8 inch thick, place on baking sheet (you can place pretty close together, as they don’t spread); then take your thumb and flatten them a bit.



Bake for 15-18 minutes, til light brown on top. (If you taste one and it’s a little chewy in the middle, put the sheet back in the oven another few minutes; you want ‘em crisp!)

'AP' flour is just regular, 'all purpose' flour.


The diameter of a penny is about 1/2 to 3/4 inch. Sorry, I fort we had friends in other parts of the world!

Variation on the above, tried yesterday and they're great!

Sub out swiss for the cheddar, and almonds for the pecans. Yum-O!

I haven't seen rice flour in our supermarket...is there something I could substitute for it, such as cornstarch?
