    ~Srb~'s Note:

    From Land-o-Lakes: "These flaky, cheesy bites are easy to make and store well." These are our favorite. The possibilities are endless: sesame seed topped, more heat (spices), no salt, garlic-flavored, etc. NOTE: Chill time of 2 hours+ has not been added to preparation nor bake time.

      Very tasty. I made this without the topping. I used less cheese (maybe 1 cup, but of a really old tasty cheddar), but they are a tiny bit greasy already and plenty cheesy, so I would probably not want to use any more. I think they would be nice with some herbs added. Will probably make again.

      Second time making: the dough was way too dry so I added an egg and some milk. Slightly different result, but still tasty. Added some minced peppers and they had a nice bite.
