In food processor, whirl together Cheddar, cream cheese, cream, mustard and pepper until smooth. Scrape into bowl; refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.
Roll by 1 tbsp into balls; arrange on parchment paper–lined baking sheet. Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. (Make-ahead: Layer between waxed paper in airtight container; refrigerate for up to 3 days.) Roll in desired coatings.
Tip from The Test Kitchen: Look for apple chips, which are crispy, instead of dried apple rings, which tend to be chewier. The chips are often sold in the produce section of major supermarkets or in health food stores.
In large bowl, beat butter with sugar until fluffy; beat in egg and vanilla. In separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt; stir into butter mixture in 2 additions. Stir in cherries; knead gently just until dough comes together.
Divide dough into thirds. Working one-third at a time, place dough on large piece of plastic wrap. Covering loosely with plastic wrap, shape into 8-inch (20 cm) long log. Flatten sides to form 1-inch (2.5 cm) tall rectangle; twist ends of plastic wrap to seal. Refrigerate until firm, at least 2 hours. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze in airtight container for up to 3 weeks. Let stand at room temperature for 20 minutes before continuing with recipe.)
Trim ends of logs; slice dough into 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick rounds, reshaping as needed. Arrange, 2 inches (5 cm) apart, on parchment paper–lined rimless baking sheets. Bake in top and bottom thirds of 375?F (190?C) oven, switching and rotating pans halfway through, until light golden, 10 to 15 minutes. Let cool on pans for 5 minutes; transfer directly to racks to cool completely. (Make-ahead: Layer between waxed paper in airtight container; store for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 2 weeks.)
These bite-size treats are fantastic on their own, but for an extra-special finish, you can dip them in chocolate or use them to sandwich your favourite fillings—think dulce de leche, jam, curd or chocolate hazelnut spread.

Bake in top and bottom thirds of 200°F oven, switching and rotating pans halfway through, until dry, about 2 hours. Let cool in oven for 30 minutes.
