Place grated cheese into mixing bowl.
Mix dry ingredients into another bowl. Mix well .
Spoon dry ingredients into grated cheese and stir until well blended.
Roll out dough until about 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick. This recipe will not rise so use your own judgement as to the thickness.
Concetta would form the cheese dough into round and stick shapes.
If round, she would make them into small round shapes. She normally used a jigger glass to cut the round shapes.
If stick shape, she would cut cheese dough with a sharp knife, cutting each stick about 1/4 inch wide and about 4 inches long sticks.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes. The coin or sticks should be golden in color and crisp.
Great to serve with wine or cocktails.
