Cheese

Look for the Proudly Wisconsin Badge when shopping for cheese. Any brand of Wisconsin Parmesan can be used in this recipe.

Instructions

  1. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy in a large bowl. Combine the flour, parmesan and salt in another bowl; gradually add to butter mixture, mixing well. Divide dough in half. Place half of dough on waxed paper; shape with paper into a 1 1/2-inch thick, round roll. Wrap in plastic wrap. Repeat with remaining dough. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or up to 1 week.
  2. Heat oven to 350°F.
  3. Cut dough into 1/3-inch slices. Place 1 inch apart on parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely on wire racks. 
  4. Melt chocolate chips in a microwave, stirring every 20 seconds until smooth. Dip half of each cookie into chocolate, letting any excess chocolate drip off. Place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets; let stand until set.

Do you have questions when shopping for cheese? Ask the cheesemonger! A cheesemonger specializes in the buying and selling of high-quality cheese, usually available in the specialty section of a grocery store or cheese shop. Knowledgeable and passionate, a cheesemonger is a go-to resource for cheese varieties and pairings, proper cheese storage and handling, its cooking applications and cheese brand information.

The parmesan cheese adds a nutty richness to the cookies balancing out the sweetness— it’s actually kind of sweet and salty. Yum!
