Cheddar Cheese Wafers Recipe

1/2 pound sharp Cheddar cheese, grated (about 2 cups)
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1/4 teaspoon celery seeds
1/2 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon kosher salt

In a standing mixer or food
processor, beat the cheese, butter, celery seeds, Worcestershire, dry
mustard, Tabasco and cayenne on medium speed or process until smooth.
Add the flour and beat on low speed or process until combined. Gather
the dough into a ball and knead a few times on a lightly floured
surface. Shape the dough into a 12-inch log, wrap in plastic and
refrigerate until firm.

Preheat the oven to
350 degrees F. Sprinkle 2 baking sheets with the salt. Slice the log
1/4 inch thick and arrange the slices 1 inch apart on the baking
sheets. Bake the wafers for about 20 minutes, or until lightly browned
on the bottom and around the edges. Transfer them to a wire rack to
cool before serving.
