Course Appetizer


  • ½ pound grated cheddar preferably Kraft’s extra sharp
  • 1 stick softened butter
  • 1 cup unsifted all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • red cayenne pepper to taste


  • Mix butter, flour, salt and pepper as if making pie crust dough. Then, mix in gratedcheese.
  • Form balls, about the size of a walnut. Chill the balls in the freezer about two hours(or store in the freezer until use.)
  • Place frozen balls on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake in a preheated oven (450°F.)for about 10 minutes. Watch carefully. Some ovens may need to be set as low as 400°F.


(Mixing in food processor is definitely a plus!. Grate cheese finely, remove it, add other ingredients, mix, then add cheese back in. Mix until it forms a big, pastry-likeball.)
