Cheese Buds

Cheesy, salty, tender bites of melt in your mouth goodness.  These cute little cheesy buttons make a great nibble for your holiday party.   Cheese Buds also make the perfect homemade holiday gift! 

Cheese BudsWho said Christmas cookies had to be sweet?  How about a cookie of the savory sort?  Growing up my mom and us girls aways made an assortment of cookies at the holidays, but one tasty morsel my mom always made that wasn’t  your traditional sweet cookie was this cheese bud recipe.


Cheese BudsYou know I love cheese.  I have always loved cheese.  I could not keep my dirty mitts off these tasty homemade bites when I was a kid.  Salty, tender, melt in your mouth cheese bites O goodness!  I usually had to be quick about snitching these because my mom usually made this recipe to be given as gifts.  She would pack them up all cute, and put a bow on them, and give them away to neighbors, teachers, bus drivers, the Avon lady, you name it my mom was and still is the queen of the homemade gifts, and cheese buds were one of her specialties.  What were her other specialties?  Knitted slippers, jams, jellies, liver paste or liver pate’, macrame plant hangers, cookies, breads, seriously our house was like a craft barn at Christmastime!


Cheese BudsNot only are these little cheesy bites of goodness perfect for gifts they are the perfect nibble for parties and to have on hand for unexpected guests.  They can be kept in an airtight container for up to a week or in the freezer for a month, so easy to keep on hand and place on a plate with a little bowl of mixed nuts Voila!  Nibbles are served!
