 Ingredients List

  • 1/2 lb Gruyere cheese, grated
  • 1 c Unsalted butter, at room
  • Temperature
  • 1 ts Cayenne pepper
  • 1 ts Salt
  • 2 1/2 c Sifted all-purpose flour
  • 1 c Chopped walnuts or pecans.


Heat the oven to 350F. Cream the cheese and butter. Sift together the
cayenne pepper, salt and flour; add gradually to the butter mixture. Add
the chopped nuts and mix well. Divide the dough in half and shape into logs
1 1/2 inches in diameter. Wrap well and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

Line baking sheets with parchment paper. With a sharp knife, cut the
logs into 1/4-inch thick slices. Place the wafers 1 to 2 inches apart on
the baking sheets.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until lightly colored. Cool and store in an
airtight container.

Makes 6 dozen.
