What is the first thing you think of when someone says pecans? If you are like me, it’s pecan pie. This week, I am sharing with you two savory dishes using pecans.
1/2 pound finely grated sharp Cheddar Cheese, at room temperature
1 stick Butter
1 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
Cayenne Pepper to taste
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1 1/2 cups All-Purpose Flour
Hot Sauce, to taste
1 1/4 cups Pecan Halves
Preheat oven to 300℉.
Combine the cheese, butter, Worcestershire sauce, cayenne, salt and flour in a food processor or electric blender and pulse several tomes to blend. The mixture should be soft and smooth.
Form the mixture into small balls. about the size of a large pecan, and place on an ungreased nonstick cookie sheet. Flatten the balls with the tines of a fork and place a pecan half on each flat ball.
Bake until just lightly browned, 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool slightly before transferring to a wire rack for cooling. Once cooled, store them in between sheets of wax paper in an airtight container.
