I’ll post the second in the coming weeks, but here’s the first. It’s actually something I’ve made before and it’s pretty easy, just a little spicy and really tasty.
· 1 cup flour
· 2/3 cup parmesan cheese (ground)
· ½ t ground red pepper
· ½ cup butter, softened to room temperature
· 2 T milk
DirectionsLike I said – this is really easy. First, wash your hands. Seriously, this is important – you’re gonna be using them.
Pour the first three ingredients in a bowl and whisk together. Next, add the butter and mix that in well. With your hands. Just get in there and mush it all together for a while. I tried using a fork and seriously that doesn’t work (or if it did it would have taken forEVER). And a hand mixer is going to be a mess – this way is easy and it works.
Once everything is mixed together, roll the dough into logs about an inch or so thick and wrap them in wax paper – you’ll get two logs out of this.
Put the logs into a ziplock bag and refrigerate them for at least 4 hours, but you can absolutely do it overnight. You can also freeze them if you like – they’ll last in the freezer for about a month.
When you’re ready to cook, take them out of the fridge and cut them into slices about a half inch thick. If you froze them let them warm up a bit before you cut them.
Place them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and brush each one with the milk.
Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes until they’re golden brown around the edges.
Cool them on a wire rack and serve – they’re going to be a hit.
