Cheddar Walnut Crackers

This is one of the appetizers that I made for snacking on Thanksgiving Day.  
My family really loved them.  
They are completely addicting. 
Spicy and super cheesy---- two great combinations. 

Cheddar Walnut Crackers
 (adapted from Savoring Time in the Kitchen )
3 tablespoons butter
8 ounces cheddar cheese, finely grated
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
5 tablespoons chopped walnuts
Sea salt for sprinkling over crackers

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

In a medium bowl cream the butter and add the cheese.  Add the flour and salt.  Mix well.  Blend in the nuts.  The dough should be a smooth consistency.

Roll into 3 logs and chill at least 1-2 hours.

Cut each log in to discs approximately 1/8 inch thick and place on a parchment lined sheet pan.  Sprinkle lightly with the sea salt.

Bake for 10-15 minutes until somewhat crisp.  (The crackers will not be crispy like crackers from a box.  They will be tender).
Cool on a wire rack and store in an airtight container.  These can be stored for up to 3 days.  (I promise, they won't last that long).
