So our our recent vacation, I shared my find of a cookbook at the lake house. I happened to have all the ingredients on hand for the Cheese Wafers today, and a clean kitchen, which is just asking to be messed up. Is it just me, or does a clean kitchen invite creativity? In my house, a clean kitchen lasts about 5 minutes.
Here's the recipe in it's original format:
I mixed up the ingredients -
Prepared the wafers.
Tossed them in the oven, and pulled them out in the specified time.
I seasoned some with paprika, and all of them with salt. My boys would totally question the paprika - I wasn't going to chance it with them. I totally cannot eat all the cheese wafers by myself - not with that list of ingredients. I think I would die.
My verdict? It's complicated. They look awesome.
They even taste really good.
But if it were my recipe, this is what I'd change -
Add something to bind the flour. If slightly undercooked, they were very crumbly. When cooked perfectly, they were still a bit crumbly.
For me, 10 minutes was too short of a cook time. 13 was better, but 15 minutes was the way to go. Just don't burn the cheese.
Beyond being fatteningly delicious, they needed seasoning mixed in with the flour. Some garlic powder and paprika would be a good start.
So would I make them again?
Probably not as written, but with my changes I'd try again. Or just make cheddar biscuits. :) Similarly delicious fattiness.
Have an odd recipe you found? I might be willing to try it for you. Send it my way!
