By popular demand, here is the recipe for “cheese cookies” straight from my grandmother’s recipe box.
Cheese Cookies (Mabel Anderson)
2 sticks (1/2 lb) soft butter
1/2 lb sharp cheddar cheese grated – room temp
2 c. sifted all purpose flour
1/2 teas salt (optional)
2 c. rice krispies
Roll into balls (flour hands) and press flat with fork. Bake 400 for 12-15 min. Serve warm or cold. May be kept in refrigerator indefinitely.
Notes: I use salted butter so I skip the extra salt. I never met Mabel Anderson, but her cookies are to die for!
