DIRECTIONS

  • Combine all dry ingredients in a medium bowl.
  • Cut in shortening until the size of little pebbles.
  • NOTE: I often grate frozen butter and stir it in with a fork rather than cutting in shortening.
  • Mix in grated cheese with a fork.
  • With a fork, stir in worchestershire sauce.
  • Add ice water and quickly stir into a ball.
  • Knead with hands, adding more ice water as needed, until smooth and pliable like pie crust dough.
  • Do not handle any more than necessary.
  • Divide dough in half and form into 2 logs about 1-1/2 inches in diameter and 8 inches long.
  • Wrap in waxed paper.
  • Place in airtight container (such as a zip bag) in the refrigerator until ready to bake.
  • These can be made days ahead.
  • When ready to bake, preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Grease cookie sheets.
  • Slice wafers off log and flatten to desired thinness (about 1/8 inch.
  • Bake about 10 to 12 minutes or until starting to lightly brown.
  • Let cool just slightly on cookie sheet to firm up; but best when served warm.
