    These are delicious little cheese bites that are great warm from the oven but also taste good at room temperature. Makes a great appetizer or snack.

      these are very easy and very delicious. i used more chilli powder than what is called for, and i'm so glad i did, cause i just love spicy stuff. i baked them for 18 minutes, as i prefer crispier results. thanks, karen for the wonderful recipe! my bf loves these, he doesn't really have a sweet tooth, the weirdo!

      Excellent and very tasty! Very beautiful as well! I didn´t have cheddar and decided to use 10 tablespoon of grated parmesan instead. I added a couple of tablespoon of cold water to compensate the lack of moisture, and I got very nice golden little cookies! I didn´t use any baking sheet either, I just put the rounds in a non greased baking tray and they came out fine. Thanks for posting!!

      These came out tasting great but did not hold together on the baking sheet. I used butter and think next time I will use margarine. Tasty! Thanks. Maybe I cooked them too long?
