Cheese Cracker Bites

Cheese Cracker Bites

Submitted by Emory Davis

The flavors of cheese and pecans blend beautifully in these mouth-sized cracker bites. A wonderful homemade appetizer to bring to a potluck or to enjoy at a family dinner. 

Time required: 25 min

Servings: 12

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups cheddar cheese (medium or sharp), shredded
  • 1/2 cup Straus Butter, softened (salted or unsalted)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup pecans, ground
  • cayenne pepper
  • garlic powder

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Combine cheese, butter and salt in food processor. Blend until smooth. Add flour and ground pecans and process until blended.

Form dough into teaspoon-sized balls and place on greased baking sheets. If desired, flatten with a fork in cross-hatch patterns, dipping tines in flour if necessary to keep from sticking. Sprinkle crackers lightly with cayenne and garlic powder.

Bake 7-10 minutes, until just beginning to brown. Serve hot or cool to room temperature.
