Cheese Daisies

Yum. A favorite! No idea where this originally came from but my great-grandmother made them often. Warning: these are highly addictive.

Cheese Daisies Recipe

Cream ¾ cup butter with 1½ cups grated sharp Cheddar cheese and ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese. Sift together 1½ cups flour, ¾ teaspoon paprika and 1 teaspoon salt. Add to creamed mixture and stir well. Pat the dough in a cooky press. Press out on baking sheets, in shapes to your fancy. Bake in a moderate oven, 350° F. for 12 minutes. If no cooky press is available, chill the dough and shape into a roll, chill again and slice, but they won’t look like daisies of course. Makes about 2 dozen cheese daisies.


A picture and someone…seems a bit fond of them…and won’t share any more of them than she already has.
