READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by BarbryT

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!
