Updated Jun 23, 2016

Ingredients

  • 1 1/3 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese (2 oz)
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened, cut up
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper sauce, as desired
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°F. Line large cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper.
  • 2
    In medium bowl, beat all ingredients except parsley on medium speed until smooth. Stir in parsley. On lightly floured surface, knead dough 10 to 12 times; shape into ball.
  • 3
    Roll into 24 balls, using about 2 teaspoons dough per ball; place on cookie sheet 1 1/2 inches apart.
  • 4
    Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown and set. Serve warm.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    If you don't have parchment paper on hand, spray the cookie sheet with cooking spray instead.
  • tip 2
    For a fun presentation, use the bites to spell out "boo."
