Why I Love This Recipe

These were a holiday favorite. Pat fixed them so they were served hot from the oven as her guest arrived.

She recommended the recipe be doubled.

Ingredients You'll Need

1/2 cup butter (half margarine if desired )
1 Cup grated cheese (NY State grated)
1 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking power
1/2 tsp dry mustard (or wet)
4 Tbsp ice water
Dash of Tabasco


Cut in butter, cheese, flour, salt, baking power and mustard with pastry cutter.

Add water and Tabasco

Form into ball and put in bowl.

Refrigerate dough so it is chilled

After dough is chilled, use cookie press and make spritz logs.

Or roll out dough and cut into strips.

Bake at 350 for 10 minutes or less
