Cheddar Cheese Coins 
with Cream Cheese and Red Pepper Jam 

Rice and Gravy

If you are from the South, you are familiar with cheese crackers and cheese straws. There are countless recipes out there, but this one works for me and I hope it works for you.

They are delicious on their own, but I like them served with a dollop of cream cheese and red pepper jam.
Happy Sunday!

Cheddar Cheese Coins
makes about 5 dozen

8-ounces (about 2 cups) extra sharp cheddar cheese grated
1 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 Tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
1/4 teaspoon paprika
8 Tablespoons (4-ounces) unsalted butter cut into 8 pieces and chilled
3 Tablespoons of cold water

Process cheddar, flour, cornstarch, salt, cayenne, and paprika in food processor until combined, about 30 seconds. Add butter and process until mixture resembles wet sand, about 20 seconds. Add water and process until dough ball forms, about 10 seconds. Transfer dough to counter and divide in half. Roll each half into 10-inch log, wrap in plastic wrap or parchment paper and refrigerate until firm, at least 1 hour (dough can be made and frozen for 3 months).

Adjust oven racks to upper-middle and lower-middle positions and heat oven to 350° F. Line 2 rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper. Unwrap logs and slice into ¼-inch-thick coins. Place coins on prepared sheets, ½ inch apart. Bake until light golden around edges, 22 to 28 minutes, switching and rotating sheets halfway through baking. Let coins cool completely on sheets before serving. (Coins can be stored in airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.)
