Spicy Cheddar Cheese Coin
1 cup flour
1 stick butter
2 cups shredded extra sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cayenne
1/2 cup chopped bacon
In mixer, cream butter. Add salt and cayenne and mix. Add flour and bacon. Dough will be clumpy. Remove from mixer and add cheddar cheese. Mix in by hand.
I added chopped bacon--make sure it is crispy or the coins will spread too much. Also, measure the cheese carefully. Too much cheese makes the coins spread.
Divide the dough into quarters and roll until it is 1 cm round. Wrap with plastic wrap and chill.
Slice into 1/4 inch coins.
