CHEESE CRISPS
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper
  • 1 stick (4 oz) unsalted butter, softened
  • 3 cups grated sharp Cheddar cheese (12 oz)
  • 1 Tbsp chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 cup Rice Krispies
    1. Preheat the oven to 350°.
    2. In a food processor, combine the flour, salt, and red pepper; pulse until blended. Add the butter, cheese and thyme and pulse just until a dough forms; bits of cheese should still be visible.
    3. Transfer the dough to a large bowl and gently fold in the Rice Krispies. Working with a scant Tbsp at a time, roll the dough into balls. Place the balls about 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten slightly with your fingertips into 1 1/2 inch rounds. Bake the crisps for about 15 minutes, or until firm to the touch and just beginning to brown.
    4. Let cool on the sheets for 1 to 2 minutes, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
