1 lb. extra-sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper, or more to taste
1/4 tsp. paprika
1/4 tsp. ground cumin, if desired
1 cup finely chopped Georgia pecans


  1. 1
    Combine shredded cheese and softened butter in the bowl of a food processor fitted with steel blade or in a mixing bowl. Mix well. Add flour, salt, cayenne pepper, paprika and cumin, if desired. Process or stir until dough comes together in a ball. With clean hands, work pecans into dough so they are well distributed.
  2. 2
    Shape dough into three logs, about 1 1/4" in diameter. Wrap securely with wax paper or plastic wrap and chill at least 2 hours. (These can be frozen for up to a month. Thaw before baking).
  3. 3
    When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350°F. Slice dough into 1/4" coins and place on baking sheets. Bake about 12-15 minutes, or until coins begin to brown. Remove to a wire rack to cool, then store in airtight tins. Season to your liking.
