Cheese Wafers

Prep time 10 mins
Bake time 15 mins
Yield Makes 4 dozen
For the best results, shred the Cheddar cheese from a block or round. Preshredded, bagged cheese doesn't work well in this recipe. The sharp Cheddar gives extra flavor--don't substitute regular Cheddar.


  • 1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • Dash of salt
  • Dash of paprika
  • 1 1/2 cups cornflakes cereal, crushed
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped almonds

How to Make It

  1. Process cheese and butter in a food processor until blended. Add flour, salt, and paprika; process until mixture forms a ball, stopping once to scrape down sides. Add cereal and almonds; process until blended, stopping twice to scrape down sides.

  2. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place balls 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Flatten each dough ball in a crisscross pattern with a fork dipped in flour.

  3. Bake at 350°, in batches, for 14 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool. Store in an airtight container up to 1 week.
