Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. Using electric mixer, beat together butter, Mozzarella and Parmesan (or Romano) cheeses. Using wooden spoon, stir in remaining ingredients. Divide dough into thirds; wrap each in plastic wrap and chill for 15 minutes.
  3. On lightly floured surface, roll out dough, 1 third at a time, until ¼ “(5 mm) thick.
  4. Using star-shaped cookie cutter, cut out stars; transfer to parchment paper-lined baking sheets.
  5. Bake in centre of oven for about 15 minutes or until crisp and golden. Cool on pan on racks.
