Buttery and rich, melt in your mouth, one-bite savory shortbread cookies that make the best snacking anyplace, anytime!
I always intended to make savory shortbread and finally a Food52 contest inspired me; this is a basic shortbread recipe with two favorite ingredients of mine, sharp cheddar and prosciutto. Highly addicting, bet you can’t eat just one! —lapadia
about 20, ¼-inch cookies from each dough log
8 oz (2 sticks) unsalted butter – room temperature
5 oz sharp white cheddar cheese, shredded finely (KerryGold Vintage, Irish cheddar aged 2 years preferred)
15-20 grinds fresh rainbow peppercorn (or whatever you have on hand) – to your taste
4 oz prosciutto small diced – I buy the pre-packaged diced prosciutto = Abraham Diced Prosciutto
