    The best cheese wafers on my humble opinion. :-) I ALWAYS make a double batch. Everyone loves them; you can’t make too many!

      Barbry, These are scrumpt-delicious! I made them last night as an appetizer for some guests who popped over for a soup/salad dinner in la cucina and it was a huge hit...all gone! I'll have to make more tonight. This time I'll add cayenne. I read Dreamer's review and tested 2 different thickess measures and we prefer the thicker ones. The last batch I dusted with Creole seasonings before brushing with the eggwash and that was good, too. Thanks for a great app recipe! **This was saved in my Top 2008 Recipes CookBook!

      I made this for Please Review My Recipe game, and will leave comments rather than a review because I don't want to spoil the stellar 5 star rating. I am always cautious, and expect that I did something wrong, when so many others have loved a recipe and I am ambivalent. I did use an old cheddar, but I would have liked more zip...perhaps some cayenne, cajun spice, or dry mustard would have given some sparkle. Also, next time I will definitely roll the dough to less than 1/4 inch so that they will be crisper. Mine were flaky, but not particularly crunchy (which I would have liked), and a tad oily...that is why I think there may have been an error on my part, and why I have not rated the pastries. I will certainly try this recipe again (after my post-Christmas diet!).

      Wonderful little biscuits. I rolled out some to 1/4 " thickness and some to about 1/8" thickness and I think I prefer the thinner ones. They're all delicious, though.
