Cheddar Shortbread Bites

Recipes from AlansKitchen.comMakes 60 appetizers

Prep Time: 20 min.
Baking Time: 12 min.
Chilling Time: 2 hrs or overnight

Ingredients:

  • Shortbread Ingredients:
    • 1 - cup all-purpose flour
    • 1/2 - cup butter, softened
    • 1/2 - teaspoon salt
    • Dash ground red pepper (cayenne)
    • 1 - package (8-ounce) (2 cups) Sharp Cheddar Cheese, shredded
  • Topping Ingredients:
    • 1 - egg white
    • 1 - Tablespoon water
    • 2 - Tablespoons poppy seed
    • 2 - Tablespoons sesame seed

Directions:

  1. In a medium bowl, combine flour, butter, salt and red pepper.

  2. Beat at medium speed until dough forms. Add cheese and mix until a ball forms.

  3. Shape dough into circle and wrap in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate 2 hours or overnight.

Preheat oven to 350 F.

  1. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface to 1/4-inch thickness.  (It will be hard to roll at first, but will soften. Press together any cracks that form on edges of dough.)  Cut dough with 1 1/2-inch cookie cutters or pizza cutter into desired shapes.

  2. Place onto ungreased baking sheets.  Beat egg white and water together in small bowl.  Brush cut-outs with egg wash; sprinkle with seeds.

  3. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until very lightly browned around edges.  Immediately loosen from pan and let cool on pan.

Alan's Kitchen Tip
Shortbread can be topped with a variety of other ingredients such as chili powder, seasoned salt, fennel seed or herbs.
