Ingredients:  
1 lb extra-sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
cup unsalted butter, softened
2 cups all-purpose flour (I use unbleached)
1 tsp salt
tsp cayenne paper
tsp paprika
tsp ground cumin
1 cup finely chopped pecans

Directions:
Directions:
Combine cheese and softened butter in a bowl of a food processor, or mixer. Mix well. Add remaining flour, salt, and spices. Mix or process until dough comes together in a ball.

Work pecans into the dough. Shape dough into logs about 1" in diameter. Wrap securely with plastic wrap and chill at least 2 hours or freeze.

When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350. Slice dough into " coins and place on baking sheets. Bake 12-15 minutes or until they begin to brown. Be patient and don't take them out too early!

Cool on wire racks, then store in airtight containers.

Personal Notes:
Tip: I use a block of cheddar, cut up into about 1" cubes. Then I mix a handful of cubes with about a quarter cup of flour in my mini-food processor and process that together. It makes the cheese more into a consistency of grated parmesan, and that mixes better into the dough to make the coins more crisp!
