(from The Laura Ingalls Wilder Country Cookbook)
about 18 pieces
1/4 pound sharp cheddar cheese, cut in small cubes
1/4 cup butter, cut in small pieces
1/2 cup flour
pinch of salt
Cream cheese and butter in food processor. Add flour and salt and process until combined. From cheese mixture into 1 inch balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheet and refrigerate several hours. Sprinkle with paprika and bake at 450 for 8 to 10 minutes. Serve hot and enjoy!
I don't have a food processor, so I grated the cheese and butter and blended it with the flour and salt. I did have to add about 1 tablespoon of milk to get the balls to form.
I served these to my family for breakfast with bacon and potatoes o'brien. They gobbled them right up!
