Cheddar Olive Wafers

  • 1/2 lb extra sharp cheddar, shredded
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 c flour
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1/4 t cayenne
  • 1 small jar pimento-stuffed green olives

Drain olives in a colander.  In a separate bowl, stir together flour, salt and cayenne.  In mixer, blend cheese and butter.  Add flour mixture and mix until well combined.  Add drained olives, stirring to distribute.

On floured board, roll into a 2″ diameter log.  Refrigerate 30+ minutes until firm.  Slice thinly and bake in 350°F oven for 15 minutes.  Makes about 72 wafers.
