Total time: 30 minutes | Serves 30

  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped pickled jalapenos
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped pimento
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cup flour, plus extra for dusting fork

Step 1Heat the oven to 350 degrees.

Step 2Cream the butter and cheese together in a mixing bowl with a wooden spoon until thoroughly blended. Blend in the jalapenos, pimento, mustard, salt and Worcestershire sauce. Mix well. Add the flour and stir to make a stiff dough.

Step 3Roll into 2 (15-inch) logs. Cut into 1-inch pieces for a total of 30. (This step ensures the wafers will all be about the same size.) Roll each piece into a smooth ball. Arrange on baking sheets and flatten in a crisscross pattern with a fork dipped in flour. Bake until lightly browned, 20 minutes. Serve hot or at room temperature.
