1 1/2 cups butter, softened
2 cups shredded cheese, room temperature
1 Tbsp. spicy brown mustard
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl combine butter, cheese and mustard. Add flour and mix until the mixture is completely blended and forms a large ball. Pinch off pieces and roll into a ball about the size of walnuts. Roll these balls into strings. Place on baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned. Makes about 3 dozen.
Comments: The original recipe for this called for 1 1/2 cups of cheddar cheese. I have about 1/2 cup of Parmesian and about 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheeses that needed to be used. I combined these with 1 cup of cheddar for my cheese. The original also called for a tsp. of pepper. This I eliminated but did add a Tbsp. of a herb blend that included Rosemary to half of my mix. This gave me 2 flavors and also helped me use up some leftover cheese. So for this dish Think With Your Taste Buds!
