Recipe for Pecan Cheese

Recipe Ingredients:
cup Georgia Pecans, finely chopped
1/4  tsp cumin
1/4  tsp paprika
1/2  tsp cayenne pepper
tsp salt
cups all purpose flour
1/2  cup unsalted softened butter
pound shredded extra sharp cheddar cheese

Cooking Directions:
1.  Combine shredded cheese and softened butter in the bowl of a food processor fitted with steel blade or in a mixing bowl. Mix well. Add flour, salt, cayenne pepper, paprika and cumin, if desired. Process or stir until dough comes together in a ball. With clean hands, work pecans into dough so they are well distributed.

2.  Shape dough into three logs, about 1 1/4 inches in diameter. Wrap securely with wax paper or plastic wrap and chill at least 2 hours. (These can be frozen for up to a month. Thaw before baking).

3.  When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Slice dough into 1/4 -inch coins and place on baking sheets. Bake about 12-15 minutes, or until coins begin to brown. Remove to a wire rack to cool, then store in airtight tins. Yields about 8 dozen coins.
