Savoury Cheese & Walnut Sables for Cocktails and Parties!

“These delicious crisp and light little savoury biscuits/crackers are a firm favourite in our family, especially when served with the cheese board! They are also great served with soups, dips, & salads. I have used pecans instead of walnuts in the past with the same tasty results. You can omit the chilli or cayenne pepper if you are not keen on the spicy "kick" it gives! They are very nice at Christmas time if you cut them into star shapes & serve them as aperitif snacks, or with cocktails.”
