Oh, my goodness, but these are so yummy! I cut the recipe to a third and got 18, Instead of egg wash just brushed with a little milk and sprinke sesame seeds on some garlic granules on others then left some plain. The garlic were my fav, but would love that added to the seeds. In place of cayenne I added about 4 dashes of hot sauce, which gave a tiny bite to them without being overly spicey. I rolled the dough into a log, put it in the freezer for while then sliced off rounds. Mine baked up flatter then those in the pictures - maybe I cut too thin but the numbers came out right. It didn't matter as they were so delicious. I served them to my DH with a nice glass of Cabernet and he loved them too. They mixed up very easily,and the results were crispy, crumbly, cheesey, YUM!

These are really yummy! Buttery, crumbly, and just a hint of heat from the cayenne! A perfect little nibble with a pre-dinner cocktail or glass of wine. I made the dough in the food processor, and it came together in about 10 seconds. What could be easier? I also used the roll into a log and slice method, which saved me the time of rolling out the dough, so other than chilling, I think these took a total of 20 minutes to make :) I'll look forward to trying these again, with other toppings.

Wow, definitely more than 5 stars! These delectable savoury treats are easy to prepare and bake perfectly, even for a not-so-good baker like me! They are so more-ish that I recommend making double the recipe, the first batch disappear like lightning! I topped some of mine with a rosemary-olive seasoning salt, and some with garlic salt, both equally nice, these would be good with no topping at all! A really excellent little savoury biscuit, Diner, thanks for sharing! Made for PRMR tag game

This is a really great, buttery, rich appetizer/snack/cracker! I made them yesterday evening and cause I was a bit short on time I didnt chill the dough for 2 hours but simply popped into the freezer for 20 minutes or so and still it was very easy to work with. :) I especially liked the addition of the seeds on top. They complement the intense cheddar flavour nicely. I made thicker rounds and therefore only got 30 or so out of the full recipe. Thanks very much for sharing this lovely recipe with us, diner!

Made to celebrate your Playoff Weekend win in the *Football Pool* ~ *These are so good* ! The dough is a quick-fix that handles easily & rolls w/ease, altho I prob rolled them a bit thicker than suggested. I baked them 12 min & their golden color is more from the cheese than over-baking. The buttery-rich & cheesy flavor is excellent. Altho certainly not in need of an add, garlic will find its way into my next batch. Thx for sharing this great recipe w/us. :-)
