where can I find MacLarens cheese?

Amanda @ Once Upon a Recipe

Oh goodness, these look divine. I have never tried making savory shortbread, but I think I need to change that. I love your idea of rolling the dough out in a Ziploc bag and then chilling it - so easy! Where did you buy the cheddar? Just at an average grocery store?

Julie

These look delicious, and I love your method of rolling out the dough in a bag. I usually hate messing with this type of dough because it can get so sticky. Definitely on my 'to try' list. Thanks for sharing!

Eileen

These look so good! Definitely a different shortbread for the holiday season. I don't think I've ever seen a cheddar cheese quite like that one either!

Paula

We love MacLaren's cheese. This shortbread of yours looks wonderful!

Renee

It's always good to balance the sweet with the savoury - these look like the hit of the party.

Emily

That is an amazingly beautiful rolling pin, where did you get it?

This is my kind of recipe! Did you like them better with the Parmesan or with out? Inquiring minds want to know! Seriously!

Ok I live in Massachusetts I cant seem to find this cheese any help?! Or is there something that may be similar?

Stefanie @ Sarcastic Cooking

Amazing! I love this. I want them right now with some great meats and cheeses, and wine.

joan

Yum and Yum. I love the use of the plastic bag. Thanks. :)

Natalie

These look incredible!

Jessica

Looks delicious! I wonder, could you try another spreadable cheese like a Boursin?

Melissa@EyesBigger

Your rolling tip is freaking genius... thank you! I avoid rolling stuff because I'm so lame at it and make a disastrous mess. Love the Maclarens cheese. I can totally see how it would be perfect for these (plus, they would never ever leave my house. I think it's pretty amazing you even think about giving them away!)

natalie gomes

Looks so good! Not sure I can find that exact cheese though.

I've never tried savory shortbread. I love your rolling pin! It's so pretty. I roll out my shortbread in a ziploc bag too - just makes life so much easier. I know you recommend mclarens cheese but I am pretty sure I can't find it where I'm located. I'm going to give these a go with whatever else I can find.

1. Am totally making these this weekend.
2. I have rolling pin envy.
3. Your tip about rolling the dough in the ziploc bag and then freezing is a game changer.
4. Yum.

Erica

I think you are a Calgarian, too? If you are, where did you find the cheese? Wanna make this for bf's Valentines since he hates sweets hehe
Thanks :D

Brittany

I didn't have time to get to a grocery store, so I used cream cheese in replacement of the imperial cheddar and then added half a cup of cheddar in with the chives. They were absolutely fabulous, they got devoured. Thank you for the fantastic recipe.

I live in MA. Couldn't find your MacLaren's Imperial cheese, but I was able to find a similar product in the 'better' cheese case at my local grocery store called Presidential (Sharp Cheddar in a tub)- it's soft and spreadable. The texture of my crackers were a bit doughy, though. I would try the recipe again, but would add some grated cheddar or even finely grated parmesan to the mixture.
The 'rolling out in a bag' really helped!!
