- One stick butter (8 tablespoons)
- One egg
- Two cups good quality cheese (cheddar, swiss, gruyere, etc.), grated or shredded
- 1.5 cups flour
- 3 teaspoons cumin (recipe calls for toasted seeds, I used powder and it came out fine)
- 0.5 teaspoon salt
- 0.5 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Mix everything except the paprika in a bowl. Make one-inch-diameter balls. Bake at 400 degreesoF for about ten minutes. Sprinkle with paprika.
If you make larger balls and bake twice as long, you can also turn them into cheese biscuits. They're good that way, too.
