Queso Fresco Guacamole Bites

Preheat oven to 400°F. Line large baking sheet with parchment paper.

In medium bowl, combine flour, salt and zest. Cut in butter using pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle cold water over dry mixture 1 tablespoon at a time, tossing lightly and stirring with fork. Add water each time to driest part of mixture. Dough should be just moist enough to hold together when kneaded gently.

Roll out dough to 1/8-inch thickness. Using 1 1/2-inch cookie cutter, cut in rounds. Place rounds on prepared baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes or just until turning lightly golden.
Cool on wire rack.
