Cheese-Nut Wafers (D, TNT)
Source: Unknown
Yield: 8 dozen 2" (5cm) shapes

1/2 cup (125ml) butter
2 cups (500ml) grated old Cheddar cheese
1/2 cup (125ml) grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup (250ml) all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp. (1ml) cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp. (2ml) salt
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup (125ml) finely chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).

With an electric mixer, cream butter. Stir in grated cheeses.

In separate bowl, mix flour, cayenne, and salt. Add cheese mixture and mix well.

Knead mixture a few times on lightly floured board. Divide in four. Roll one piece out to 1/8" (3mm) thick, be sure there is enough flour to release dough from surface.

Cut out star shapes and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Shapes may be stars or moons or whatever cutters you may have. When cookie sheet is full, brush each shape with egg, then sprinkle with chopped walnuts or other nuts of choice.

Bake in oven for about 8 minutes or until golden brown. Warm in a moderate oven before serving.
