 Ingredients List

  • 1 c Grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 c Margarine; softened
  • 1/4 c Unsalted butter; softened
  • 1 ts Salt
  • 1/4 ts Cayenne pepper; scant
  • -measure
  • 1 c All-purpose flour


Lee's Intro: Different versions of these little biscuits are served all
over the South, using different kinds of cheese, with and without pepper.
These wafers can be kept for several weeks in a tightly closed tin.

Preheat oven to 350F degrees.

Cream the cheese, margarine, butter, salt, and cayenne in a large bowl. Add
the flour and mix thoroughly. Roll into a ball and wrap tightly in plastic
wrap. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Divide dough in half, then keep dividing the dough in half until you have
32 small balls. Place them on an ungreased cookie sheet and flatten with
the heel of the hand. These do not spread out or rise much during baking,
so they can be placed fairly close together.

Bake until just golden, about 15 minutes. Allow to cool for just a minute
before removing with a spatula to a cooling rack.
