Cheese Wafers

One of my favorite snacks that my mom and I made when I was growing up were cheese wafers. These treats are not sweet, in fact they are the complete opposite. These savory, cheese wafers have a crunch to them and make the perfect appetizer to serve at parties. I typically only make them during the holidays, but I see no need in only sharing them once a year. They are perfect year round!

First, soften butter in a medium size bowl.  In a separate large bowl add flour, Rice Krispies, shredded cheese and mix together. Add softened butter to the dry ingredients and mix well. Refrigerate the dough for 2 hours making it easier to work with. Once chilled, roll the dough into golf ball sized balls and gently flatten on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake on 350 for 12 minutes or until the edges start to brown.

And there ya have it. Such a simple and easy appetizer.
