Easy Cheese Wafers Appetizers

Tailgates or Bridal Showers A Savory Appetizer

Cheese Wafers were staples for cocktail parties, bridal showers, the alumni tea, and Saturday afternoon tailgates back in my college days.

Ruth Ann Palumbo brought them to our sorority house during finals week, for a savory alternative to sugar buzz.

Call me old fashioned, but I love these cheesy morsels. Adorned with pecan halves, these look like they belong on the dessert table. Once you try them, you’ll know they belong in your entertaining arsenal.

Save the cayenne for Easy Spicy Cheese Straws. A hint of garlic gives cheese wafers a unique identity.

This is one of those recipes you have you let chill two hours. I mix dough the night before, and then bake day of event. They are easy to make, and refrigerator time is but a minor inconvenience.

Cheese Wafers will store for a couple of days. Will they last longer? I don’t know. They just vanish. I especially these served alongside Kentucky burgoo and a pour of bourbon.
