Christmas Cheese Crackers

1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 cup (4 ounces) grated sharp Cheddar cheese
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons chopped chives
1 teaspoon whole caraway seed
1 teaspoon steak sauce
1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, beat butter and cheese using
lowest speed of an electric mixer until well blended. Add next 5
ingredients; mix until a soft dough forms. On a lightly floured surface, use
a floured rolling pin to roll out dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Use a
tree-shaped cookie cutter to cut out crackers.


Transfer to a greased baking sheet. Sprinkle salt over crackers. Bake 12 to
15 minutes or until crackers are light brown. Cool completely on a wire
rack. Store in an airtight container.

Yield: about 3-1/2 dozen crackers
