The Epicurious Parmesan Shortbread Rounds put a savory twist on the favored holiday cookie. While the treat is known for being stacked full of butter and sugar, the recipe re-images the classic with the infusion of salty, cheesy flavors.
Present in the Parmesan Shortbread Rounds is cayenne pepper, kosher salt, garlic and two tablespoons of grated cheese. While the parmesan variety is used in this post, it can be replaced with other ingredients such as cheddar or havarti.
After baking the mixture until golden brown, these bites will be ready to serve at festive parties and events. Given their striking, alternative taste, they also make for simple gifts, wrapped with ease in boxes or bags.
