Cheese Wafers

recipe
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.

Prep: 10 Minutes
Bake: 15 Minutes

Ingredients

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

Preparation

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.

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.

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.
