Vincent Price Cheese Delights – Biscuits
1/2 cup chilled butter
1/2 lb grated sharp cheddar cheese
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
split blanched almond, for garnish
salt, to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2 In a bowl, cream together the butter and cheddar cheese (you can use an electric mixer, if you like – just be sure not to over-mix).
Mix in the flour, salt, and cayenne pepper.
Gather dough into a ball, cover with plastic, and chill in refrigerator for 1 hour.
Remove from refrigerator and turn out the dough onto a lightly-floured board.
Roll dough to a 1/4-inch thickness and cut with a small round biscuit cutter.
Place biscuits on a non-stick baking sheet, press a half of a blanched almond in the center of each biscuit, and lightly sprinkle the biscuits to taste with salt.
Bake at 350 degrees for 7-8 minutes until golden.
