Smoked almond cheddar wafers are delicious, savory treats that are perfect for snacking or serving as appetizers. Here's a recipe for the best smoked almond cheddar wafers:


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional, for a spicy kick)
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup smoked almonds, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon water


  1. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, and cayenne pepper (if using) until well combined.
  2. In a separate large bowl, cream together the softened butter and shredded cheddar cheese until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the chopped smoked almonds, Worcestershire sauce, and water to the butter and cheese mixture. Stir until all the ingredients are evenly incorporated.
  4. Gradually add the flour mixture to the butter and cheese mixture, stirring until a dough forms. You may need to use your hands to bring the dough together.

  9. Place the rounds onto the prepared baking sheets, leaving some space between them.
  10. Bake the smoked almond cheddar wafers in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until they are golden brown around the edges.
