Cheese Wafers

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Ds Darling

I found this recipe in an old Bicentennial Cookbook. They aren't crunchy but rather soft. I use extra sharp cheese to make this, my personal preference.

These are very good, so easy to make, went great with soup! Next time I would add some garlic . I followed the recipe exactly and got 19 wafers.... you could also add bacon .... lots of possibilities!
