Southern hostesses have long relied on cheese wafers to keep their party guests satiated.
Makes 32 wafers
Preheat oven to 350°. Cut butter into flour until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in cheese, red pepper, and salt. Fold in cereal. Shape into 1-inch balls, and place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Flatten each dough ball. Bake, in batches, 15 minutes. (Refrigerate remaining baking sheet while first batch is baking.)
