Savory cookies with cheese and sundried tomato

And you are craving to eat. Something small, something simple, something that will make you feel better. But you wonder what that could be.

Sweet or savory? Sometimes it tends to be sweet, some savory.

For the sweet part, I'm sure that, a bit of chocolate it's your choice ... at least that's mine. But when you want something savory, what do you choose? A toasted bread? A bit of cheese? or what?

Whatever that was, forget it. I will share with you a wonderful savory snack. Cookies with variety of cheese and sundried tomato. It has great taste and a size that makes it ideal for the "difficult" times . Bake a portion and you have the perfect snack for several days and handy when needed. The cheddar is giving its distinctive taste and the sundried tomato puts a little volume. It is easy to make and you do not need to watch anything really. Have your ingredients at room temperature, grind and chop them before you start to mix.

For more buttery flavor I have used the Flora with butter. It gives the smell and taste of butter without turning your cookies "heavy".
