Savoury cookies

I was hooked on these savoury cookies when I saw them in Anu's blog. They were of cute shapes which appealed me more. I had bookmarked the recipe and I tried these the same week with a few changes. They can be made in a matter of minutes and they serve as a very good accompaniment to hot tea. They are a great variation to the normal sweet and chocolatey cookies. They are filled with cheesy goodness and freshly ground pepper. This recipe is definitely a keeper.

Ingredients

Cold Butter - 1 cup
All-Purpose Flour - 1 1/2 cups
Cheese - 1/2 cup I used a mixture of mozzarella and cheddar
Baking Powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Freshly ground pepper - about 2 teaspoons
Mixed dried Herbs - 1 teaspoon
Cold Water few tablespoons

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 F.

Take the flour in a mixing bowl and add the butter. Mix in with your fingers until it forms small crumbs. Add the cheese, baking powder, pepper and mixed dried herbs and mix. Add few spoons of cold water and knead to form a dough. Do not overknead.

Roll out the dough to about 1/4 inch thick and cut into the required shapes.

Bake for about 20 minutes until they turn golden brown.

Cool on a wire rack.

Store in an airtight container.
