FIERY CHEESE WAFERS

YIELD

4 dozen wafers

SHOPPING LIST / INGREDIENTS

2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese

1/2 lb (2 sticks) butter, at room temperature

2 cups sifted all-purpose flour

1/2 tsp kosher salt

1/2 tsp cayenne pepper, more to taste

Plastic wrap

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Pulse the cheese in a food processor for 10-12 seconds. Add the butter and pulse to combine.
  2. Sift the flour and whisk in the salt and cayenne pepper. Mix the flour and cheese mixture together by hand until well-combined.
  3. Place (2) pieces of plastic wrap (each at least 16 inches long) on the work surface. Divide the dough in (2) pieces and place each on a piece of plastic wrap. Shape into a log 12 inches long and 1 inch in diameter by rolling it back and forth on the counter. (If the dough is too soft, chill in the refrigerator.) Twist the ends of the plastic wrap to secure. Once shaped, chill the logs for 30-45 minutes, until quite firm.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  5. Slice each log into 24 slices, each 1/2 inch thick. Place on an ungreased baking sheet, 1/2 inch apart. Bake until golden, 12-15 minutes.
  6. Let cool on a cooling rack. Pack the wafers in tins to keep them crisp.

Note: the logs can be frozen. When ready to use, remove them from the freezer and set out. When soft enough, slice and prepare logs as directed above.

Variation: use 1 1/2 cups crumbled Gorgonzola cheese in place of the cheddar and add 1/2 cup toasted pecans.
