These simple cheese crisps have lots of flavor and plenty of crunch, thanks to a secret ingredient, crispy rice cereal! The crisps can be made with cheddar, gruyere, parmesan, and many other types of cheese.
7tbspbutterat room temperature
8ozgruyere or cheddar cheeseshredded
3.5ozall purpose flour, by weight(about 2/3 cup, measured)
1cupcrispy rice cereal
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Beat together the butter and cheese until combined. Add the flour, cayenne, and salt and beat until you get a crumbly dough. Add the rice cereal and beat briefly just to combine (don’t overbeat or you might break up the rice crisps).
Use a disher to portion out 1 tbsp amounts of dough, and place onto a sheet pan (it will look like a pile of rubble). Use a fork to hash and compact it down. Bake for about 15 minutes, until lightly browned. Let them cool, and enjoy!
