Did you ever see a recipe in a magazine and think… “that looks yummy, I think I will make it?” Most of the time when I do this I have good luck and the recipe comes out just as pictured. I received the latest issue of Taste of Home recently and saw a recipe for Cheese Crispies. We had company coming for dinner in a few days and I decided I would make this appetizer. Unfortunately it didn’t come out quite as expected!Cheese Crispies

Fortunately I improvised and the end result was delicious!

Crispy Cheese Crackers

1 cup butter, softened
2 ½ cups cheddar cheese (10oz)
2 cups flour
¾ tsp salt
½ tsp cayenne pepper
2 ½ cups Rice Krispies

In a large bowel, beat the butter and cheddar cheese until blended. In another bowl combine the flour, salt and cayenne pepper. Gradually add this mixture to the butter cheese mixture. Stir in the Rice Krispies.

Divide the dough in half and shape each into a 7 inch long roll. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for an hour or overnight. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Unwrap the logs and cut the dough into ¼ inch slices. Place one inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 14-16 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. Removed the crackers from the pans and cook on a wire rack.

I mixed the dough but it was too dry and would not form into a log at all.Crispy Cheese Crackers So rather than try to chill this crumbly mass I had I used a scoop and scooped up dough and placed it in a greased mini muffin tin.Crispy Cheese Crackers I had enough to fill two mini muffins tins. I patted the dough into place.Crispy Cheese CrackersThen baked at 350 until they were golden, about 15-20 minutes. I let cool for a few minutes in the tin and then removed to the wire rack.Crispy Cheese Crackers

They were delicious and our company loved them!Cheese Crispies
