Recipe Courtesy of Reasor's
These rounds really do melt in the mouth. They can be made ahead and reheated and are even good when not heated.
1 cup Butter or Margarine
4 cups (1 pound) Sharp Cheddar Cheese, shredded
2 cups All-purpose Flour
1/8 teaspoon Cayenne, optional
Poppy and Sesame Seeds
Cream butter with mixer or food processor using steel blade.
Blend in cheese, flour and cayenne, if used.
Chill about 1 hour.
Shape into 1-inch balls.
Put some of each seed in small dishes Sprinkle 1/2 of the balls with sesame seeds and remaining 1/2 with poppy seeds.
Place on ungreased baking sheet 1 l/2-inches apart.
Chill 1 hour.
If refrigerator space is limited, put balls all on 1 sheet.
Move to other sheets to bake.
Bake at 400 F about 10 minutes.
Do not brown.
The rounds will not be dry when done.
