Another one from a friend at work! They are a wonderful appetizer, and are the first thing to go at every luncheon (watch out for the kick!) - thanks, Marilyn! Yield is approximate.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 tablespoons margarine, softened (I swear by Blue Bonnet)
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 12 teaspoons ground red pepper or 1 12 teaspoons cayenne
  • 12 lb cheddar cheese, grated (prefer sharp, and please grate your own cheese, it will stick together better that way)
  • 14 teaspoon salt
  • 12 cup finely ground pecans


  1. Cream together the margarine and the grated cheese.
  2. Add all other ingredients.
  3. Roll dough into log form, wrap well in waxed paper or plastic wrap, and refrigerate until firm.
  4. Preheat oven to 375. Spray baking sheet lightly with cooking spray.
  5. Slice thin (less than 1/4"), place on baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes. Note: if dough crumbles a bit when you slice it, simply press the pieces back together. These are not "cookie cutter" crackers.
  6. Remove carefully with spatula, and allow to cool completely on wire rack.
