1 cup unbleached flour
1/3 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/3 cups finely grated, sharp cheddar cheese
1 teaspoon salt (you may want to reduce this according to taste)
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cup butter, cubed
In bowl of food processor, combine flours, cheese, salt, and garlic powder. Add butter cubes and pulse until crumbs are formed. Blend in egg until dough comes together around the blade.
Turn dough out onto a sheet of plastic wrap. Form into 1 inch log. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and chill at least 2 hours. Preheat oven to 375 ° . Slice into thin coins. Bake for 15 minutes. Cool on rack. Package in airtight container.
This is the cheddar coin dough before cutting. I put it in the frig and then tried cutting it, but it so didn’t work. It was too soft. The first coins came out looking like little biscuits. But they were tastey.
Then I tried rolling it out and cutting out circle. This worked.
