Yield: 32 Servings

Lee's Intro: Different versions of these little biscuits are served
all over the South, using different kinds of cheese, with and without
pepper. These wafers can be kept for several weeks in a tightly
Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
Cream the cheese, margarine, butter, salt, and cayenne in a large
bowl. Add the flour and mix thoroughly. Roll into a ball and wrap
tightly in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Divide dough in half, then keep dividing the dough in half until you
have 32 small balls. Place them on an ungreased cookie sheet and
flatten with the heel of the hand. These do not spread out or rise
much during baking, so they can be placed fairly close together.
Bake until just golden, about 15 minutes. Allow to cool for just a
minute before removing with a spatula to a cooling rack.
