Parmesan-Pepper Shortbread Bites

Parmesan-Pepper Shortbread Bites

These savory shortbread cookies are quick and easy to prepare. Made with parmesan cheese and spiced with black pepper, their rich, nutty flavor makes a nice addition to a first-course cheese plate.


Parmesan-Pepper Shortbread Bites

  • Ingredients:
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1-1/3 cups finely grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 egg yolks

Preparation:
Place the flour in a bowl and cut the butter in with a pastry blender or fork. Add the parmesan cheese, salt and pepper and combine well. Add the egg yolks and work into a soft dough.

Divide the dough into 2 pieces and form each into a log about 7-inches long. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, 30 to 45 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 400°F and line a large baking sheet with parchment. Cut each log into thin slices (about 3/16-inch) and arrange on the baking sheet about 1/2 inch apart.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until light golden brown. Watch carefully. Cool for 10 minutes on wire racks.

Makes about 3 dozen (recipe can be cut in half)

Recipe Notes:
Store in an airtight container at room temperature, 3 to 5 days.
