Cheese Cookies

This recipe requires a food processor, so if you only have a tiny one, cut the recipe in half. Despite the name, these are not sweet; they're more like cheese crackers.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound processed American loaf cheese, like Velveeta (store brand works fine)
  • 1/2 pound sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 pound butter
  • 1 cu p soy powd er
  • About 6 dozen pecan or walnut halves (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. Cut the loaf cheese, Cheddar, and butter into chunks.
  3. Put the cheese chunks, butter, and soy powder in the food processor, and pulse until the dough is well combined.
  4. Coat a cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Drop spoonfuls of dough onto the cookie sheet, and press half a pecan or walnut in the top of each one (if using).
  5. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the cookies are just getting brown around the edges.

Yield: This will depend on how big you make your cookies. I make mine small and get 6 dozen, each with 1 gram of carbohydrates, a trace of fiber, and 2 grams of protein.
