CHEESE WAFERS RIMMED IN SMOKED PAPRIKA

APPETIZERS

Cheese Wafers

YIELD

40-50 wafers

INGREDIENTS

2 cups grated sharp White Cheddar Cheese
1 1/2 sticks Butter, room temperature
1 c All-Purpose Flour
1 c Bread Flour
1/2 tsp Red Pepper Flakes
1/2 tsp Kosher Salt
1/2 tsp Smoked Paprika (Optional)

PREPARATION & METHOD

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cheese and butter must be at room temperature. Cream together and add sifted flour and spices.

Squeeze together the pea-sized pieces of dough until you can divide the mixture into two or three equal-sized balls. Work the dough until its warm and pliable and has the texture of a ball of Play-Doh.

Roll balls into logs (diameter of wafers will not increase when baked) and sprinkle on or roll in smoked paprika.

With dental floss or a sharp knife, slice logs into 1/4 to 1/2 inch wafers. Lay wafers in rows on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper.

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until wafers are the soft-baked consistency of a sugar cookie. Be careful not to overcook as softer wafers will melt in your mouth. Dough may be refrigerated for up to a week before baking.
