Lady Bird's Ranch Crackers (Cheese Wafers)

 What you need:

  • 2 cups spelt flour (this whole wheat flour has a slightly nutty taste)
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, cut into pieces
  • 8 ounces (2 cups) sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 cups Rice Crispies© cereal


Preheat oven to Bake at 350°F. 

In a food processor, add the flour and butter. Pulse until well blended. Add cheese and seasonings. Again, pulse until well blended. Lastly, add the cereal and fold into the mixture with a spatula.

Drop by small rounds on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Flatten with a spoon (that has been coated in flour).

Bake for about 15 minutes. Don't allow wafers to get too brown.

Makes approximately 4 dozen.

Lady Bird considered these a ranch staple which were served on all occasions: especially with cocktails.
