Recently I realized that the best dessert kind of cookies is…the cheese ones to me! I’ve been experiencing with flavors quite often recently. I hope one day I’ll share with some nice ideas (So far I have been rather eating than shooting them). But in a nutshell, there are plenty of options such as all kinds of nuts (pine nuts work great), dried fruit and berries, herbs, sun-dried tomatoes, and many other good things.

And although you might be busy these days, take a little of your time and make these Cheddar Cranberry Walnut Rosemary Cookies. You won’t be disappointed. And neither will be Santa.

Cheddar Cranberry Walnut Rosemary Cookies

Yield: 20-30 cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 cup grated Cheddar (Smoked cheddar will be great)
  • 1 cup soften butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 and 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 teaspoon baking powder (optional, see notes)
  • a good pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • a good pinch of black pepper
  • 1 cup dried cranberries and roughly chopped walnuts, each
  • 1/2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh rosemary (or to taste)

Instructions

  1. In a bowl, combine the cheese, butter, and egg. Beat until smooth, 1-2 minutes.
  2. Stir in the flour (add 1 cup reserving the remaining), baking powder, powdered sugar, salt, and spices. Mix until all ingredients incorporated adding more flour if necessary.
  3. Stir in the walnuts, cranberries, and rosemary. You will get soft dough. Cover the dough in plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 40-60 minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 175 degrees C. Cover baking sheets with parchment.
  5. Roll the dough out (about 0,7-1 cm) and cut cookies with a cookie cutter. Place the cookies onto the sheets and bake for about 10-12 minutes or until slightly golden brown.
  6. Remove from the oven and let completely cool.
  7. Enjoy!

Notes

* If you add the baking powder, you will have your cookies soft and flaky. If you don't use baking powder, the cookies will be still soft, but flatter and crispier ob edges. **Feel free to add more heat like cayenne pepper

    is “175” the correct oven temp?

  2. Wow, this would put a smile on my face if I was Santa. Great flavor combination and happy to read Andrey is back home on his Christmas holidays. Cheers friend!

  3. I love this idea! Santa definitely needs some savory to balance out the sweet. Although are these still called “cookies” since they aren’t sweet? I don’t care what we call them, I’m all about these! I love a good sharp cheddar, so the combo of cheddar and walnuts and rosemary in cookie form sounds amazing to me. Perfect for holiday parties!
