Another great blessing in disguise? They are super easy to make. Perfect to serve for a holiday party. Look at the edges, they get a nice golden color to them. I love how lightly crisp these are. Now, these do have a bit of heat to them which I love, but if you don't like heat then omit the cayenne. Sorry the pics aren't that great this time around--we've have days of rain, no sun, so I'm lacking my natural light for good photos.
1 cup AP flour
1 cup Parmesan, grated
1 stick salted butter, cold & cut into chunks
½ to 1 ts Rosemary (depending on taste preference)
3 sun-dried tomatoes (on oil)
2 dashes of cayenne (optional)
1/2 ts salt
a dash or two of half & half or cream (if needed)
In a food processor combine flour, cheese, butter, rosemary cayenne, salt, and sun-dried tomatoes.
Pulsate a few times until the dough forms dough-likeness, take it out of the food processor and place it on your kitchen counter or cutting board.
Shape the dough into a log and place it on a piece of plastic wrap. Wrap tightly. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Use a really sharp knife, slice the dough into ½ inch thick slices. These are supposed to look rustic, so no need to shape them into some sort of uniformity.
Bake the cookies for 10 - 12 minutes, until lightly golden brown. They do cook fast, keep an eye on first batch until you see how fast they do brown because the bottoms brown a lot faster than the tops.
Let them cool a bit before eating. As they cool they will harden a bit.
Note: my dough batter on a couple of occasions was very dry and hard to form into a long. So I added a dash or two of half & half and it came together perfectly. If you do add in the half & half please make sure to add in as little as possible as it only takes a tiny amount; add too much and you can ruin the dough.
