Cheesy Wafers

Cheese in cookies...? It sounds crazy, but wait till you try these. They're perfect for an easy appetizer or dessert cookie.

What You'll Need:
  • 3/4 cup (1½ sticks) butter, softened
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 4 cups (1 pound) coarsely grated sharp Cheddar cheese)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
What To Do:
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degree F.

  2. In a large bowl, with your hands, rub together the butter, flour, nutmeg, and cayenne pepper until smooth and creamy. Add the cheese and knead on a piece of waxed paper for 3 to 4 minutes until smooth and thoroughly blended.

  3. Divide the dough in half. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough to 1/8-inch thickness between two sheets of waxed paper. Cut with a 2-inch round cookie cutter and sprinkle the cookies generously with sugar. Reroll the dough scraps and repeat. Bake on ungreased cookie sheets for 4 to 6 minutes or until golden.

  4. Remove at once to a wire rack to cool.

    Makes about 7 dozen wafers.

Try using Monterey Jack, Swiss, or any other semi-firm cheese. It's best not to substitute margarine for butter in this recipe.
