 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/2   lb           Gruyere cheese, grated
    1       c            Unsalted butter, at room
                         Temperature
    1       t            Cayenne pepper
    1       t            Salt
    2 1/2   c            Sifted all-purpose flour
    1       c            Chopped walnuts or pecans.
 
        Heat the oven to 350F.  Cream the cheese and butter.  Sift together
   the cayenne pepper, salt and flour; add gradually to the butter mixture.
   Add the chopped nuts and mix well.  Divide the dough in half and shape into
   logs 1 1/2 inches in diameter.  Wrap well and refrigerate for at least 1
   hour.
   
        Line baking sheets with parchment paper.  With a sharp knife, cut the
   logs into 1/4-inch thick slices.  Place the wafers 1 to 2 inches apart on
   the baking sheets.
   
        Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until lightly colored.  Cool and store in
   an airtight container.
   
   Makes 6 dozen.
