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.

Enjoy!!!
