Cheese Cookies

Cook’s Tip: Cut out any shape you like for your savory cookies. Children  will enjoy them cut into animal or other fun shapes. Try football shapes for your football fans.


  •  1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ cups grated sharp cheese
  • 2/3 cup butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 egg yolk
  • Sesame seeds, for sprinkling


  1. Lightly grease several cookie sheets.
  2. Mix flour and cheese together in a bowl.
  3. Add the butter to the cheese and flour mixture and mix with your fingers until combined.
  4. Stir in the egg yolk and mix to form dough. Wrap the dough and chill in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.
  5. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the cheese dough thinly. Cut out 2 ½ inch rounds, re-rolling the trimmings to make about 35 rounds.
  6. Place the rounds onto the prepared cookie sheets and sprinkle the sesame seeds over the top of them.
  7. Bake in a preheated oven at 400 degrees F for 20 minutes, until the cookies are a light golden color.
  8. Transfer the cheese cookies to a wire rack and cool slightly before serving.
