Cheese Wafers

This recipe has so few ingredients, it seems too simple. Yet the results are astonishing: buttery, spicy cheese crackers that people will eat, and eat, until the plate is empty and they have to come and
ask you for more (and for a copy of the recipe). Note that these wafers will keep for weeks, if stored in an airtight container. Makes about 48 (depends on size).

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup flour
1/2 lb American or sharp cheddar cheese, grated
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

Cream butter. Gradually add flour and pepper, then work in cheese. Form dough into a long roll as thick as you want the diameter of the wafers: half-dollar size for tea and quarter-size for cocktails. They will spread in cooking. Wrap in wax paper; refrigerate overnight.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Slice dough paper thin; bake 4-5 minutes.
