Ingredients

  • 1 1/2

    cups butter, softened

  • 1

    (1-pound) block sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded

  • 1 1/2

    teaspoons salt

  • 1 to 2

    teaspoons ground red pepper

  • 1/2

    teaspoon paprika

  • 4

    cups all-purpose flour

Directions

Beat first 5 ingredients at medium speed with a heavy-duty stand mixer until blended. Gradually add flour, beating just until combined. Use a cookie press with a star-shaped disk to shape mixture into long ribbons, following manufacturer's instructions, on parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Cut ribbons into 2-inch pieces. Bake at 350° for 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool. Cheese Wafers: Combine ingredients as directed; chill dough 2 hours. Shape dough into 4 (8-inch-long) logs; wrap each in plastic wrap, and chill 8 hours. Cut each log into 1/4-inch-thick slices; place on parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 13 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool. Store in an airtight container 1 week.
