Just one nibble and you will be hooked on these savory coriander and black pepper shortbread bites with Gruyère cheese. I've made them on the smallish side so when I say I ate three of this little melt-in-your-mouth shortbreads in one sitting, I don't feel so guilty. Besides, it is no secret that I adore small things, and that preference extends from my eating habits into most other aspects of my life, with the exception of long pieces of well crafted music and literature.
I chose semi-firm and somewhat salty Gruyère for the cookies as this cheese is excellent for melting, but alternately try these with Havarti or Gouda or go with some extra old Cheddar or creamier and milder Fontina for something a bit different.
