Shuck the corn. Rinse the cobs. Cut off the ends, then cut each in half.
Lay the corn in a microwave-safe glass baking dish. Add a layer of water (approximately 1/2 cup). Cover and microwave on high for about 10-15 minutes. Check for doneness and turn every 5 minutes until cooked. Feel free to optionally cook the corn on the cob with your favorite grilling or boiling method.
Once tender, place cooked cobs on a serving platter. Butter each ear with 1 tablespoon of butter. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Using a handheld cheese grater, shred Cooper Sharp Black Pepper cheese over the ear.
Serve with melted butter for dunking or drizzling if desired.
You can also give your corn more of a twist by adding other seasonings, like garlic salt, ground chipotle pepper or ranch powder.
