Crispy Cheese Wafers Recipe: This Savory Gluten-free Wafer Recipe Is Not Your Typical Christmas Cookie

Nope, this is not your typical Christmas cookies recipe! This delicious cheese wafers recipe is savory, spicy, gluten-free and the perfect holiday snack recipe

This recipe is super easy to make, and a delicious alternative for the holidays, or anytime!

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 to 17 minutes
Total Time: 25 to 27 minutes


  • 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese, at room temperature (shred your own, it’s less greasy that way)
  • 1 stick butter (4 ounces), softened
  • 1 1/2 cups 1 to 1 gluten-free flour  
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • pecans, halves or pieces (whatever you have on hand)

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. (Always preheat when baking anything you want crisp.)
  2. Dice up the butter a bit and shred the cheese and just leave it to soften for an hour (if you haven't already), then cream it a bit with your electric mixer.
  3. Add the dry ingredients and mix. (You’ll end up needing to finish the mixing by hand.)
  4. Take a rounded teaspoon full of dough and press into a patty shape. Press a pecan half into the top.
  5. Bake 15 to 17 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
