Round out your meal with a great-tasting, easy-to-make cracker of
pepper and Parmesan cheese. If you prefer, make these in advance.
The crackers keep well in the freezer and thaw in minutes at room
2 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
6 tablespoons flour
1 to 2 tablespoons milk (optional)
Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
In medium bowl, blend butter and cheese. Add pepper. Add flour,
1 tablespoon at a time. If dough doesn't hold together, stir
in milk, 1 tablespoon at a time.
Gather mixture into dough that holds together. Shape into cylinder
1-inch in diameter.
Wrap in plastic wrap and chill for 30 minutes.
Slice dough 1/4-inch thick. Place on ungreased baking sheet.
Bake until firm, lightly browned and cooked through, about 15 minutes.
