These sound SO good. It's another Taste of Home recipe from my annual collections. I think they will be making an appearance this week for a snack.

Cheddar Pepper Crisps

1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup cold butter, cubed
1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup cold water
2 tablespoons vinegar
Coarsely ground pepper

In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Cut in butter
until crumbly. Stir in cheese. Sprinkle with water and vinegar.
Toss with a fork until a ball forms. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap;
refrigerate for 1 hour or until dough is firm.

Divide into six portions. On a lightly floured surface, roll each
portion of dough into an 8-in. circle. Cut into eight wedges and
place on greased baking sheets. Sprinkle with pepper; lightly press
into dough. Bake at 375° for 10-14 minutes or until golden brown
and crisp. Cool on wire racks. Store in an airtight container.

Yield: 4 dozen.
