Have you ever had a savory cookie? Now is the time to try it out! These savory cookies make a great pairing for any of our Chardonnays!
- 1 ½ pounds white cheddar cheese, shredded
- 1 tbsp. black pepper, freshly ground
- 1 pound butter, unsalted
- 2 tsp. Kosher salt
- 6 tbsps. thyme, picked from stem, chopped
- 20 ounces flour, sifted
- 1 cup walnuts, toasted, chopped
In a standing mixer with the paddle attachment, add the butter, shredded cheddar, salt, and pepper. Mix on low to medium speed until creamy. On low speed, add the flour. When the dough begins to form, add the walnuts.
Using parchment paper, form 3, 7” or 8” logs and refrigerate until firm. When chilled, cut ¼” thick rounds and place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Chill the tray of cut cookie dough for at least 30 minutes before baking.
Bake in a 350-degree oven for 12 – 15 minutes. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool. Store the cookies in an airtight container for up to a week.
