This is a great appetizer for any gathering. It goes especially well with cocktails.

1 stick Butter

2 cups sharp Cheddar Cheese, grated

1 1/2 cups All-purpose Flour

3/4 teaspoons Cayenne Pepper

Salt to taste

Preheat oven to 275℉.

Combine the butter and cheese and mix well. Add flour and spices and blend well in a food processor. Force the mixture through a cookie press into strips and place on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake until lightly browned, about 20 minutes. Cool completely before storing in airtight containers. You can make these a week in advance.


Good Cooking, Good Eating and Good Living!!!


I lived in New Orleans, since birth, until Hurricane Katrina. I now live in Arkansas with my wife and our spoiled-rotten dog. I have been cooking since I was 8. My first cookbook, You can't keep New Orleans out of the cook, is now available at and most online bookstores. It is also available on Kindle and Nook.
