I make these cheese cookies or "cheese krispies" as I call them at least twice a year. When the United Methodist Women meet at my house in March for a meeting and then again during the holidays. My family just loves them and they are just so easy to put together. They are always the right cheesy cookie to serve with sweets and other party goodies.BCD
I think I "mushed" these too much, but they still came out very tasty. I didn't have cayenne, so I used chili powder, sparingly. Next time I make these, i think I will not grind in the krispies as ruthlessly as I did this time. And I may add some chopped jalapeno pepper and/or some swiss cheese. Like I said, I don't know if these were done to right consistency, but they were certainly tasty. And easy, easy, easy to make.
good cheesey taste-easy to make worth the effort
These need to come with a warning label: WARNING! VERY ADDICTIVE! Wonderful little morsels, you can adjust the "zip" to your taste- thanks for posting this recipe- betcha you can't eat just one! :)
I've made these for years and, yes, they are super! They keep very well in an airtight container or ziplock as well -- just be warned that, the longer they sit, the spicier they get!!!!
These are very good, & highly addictive. I took them to an office potluck & everyone raved about them. Good cheesy flavor with a little kick from they cayenne. Next time, I might sprinkle them with a little garlic salt immediately after removing from the oven to add some extra flavor. I will make these again -- thanks for posting, Bergy! -M :-) Update: these would be really good served as dippers for hot pepper jelly & cream cheese!
I thought these were very bland and did not taste at all like a cookie. I followed the recipe exactly, guess they are just not my taste, sorry.
Wow! These are so buttery and cheesy AND addictive! I made them for the 15 adults at a kid's birthday party and they were gone in a flash. (Fifteen adults ate the entire batch in about 15 minutes!) I made them a bit on the small side, so my yield was 75 cookies. I thought I added cayenne, but upon looking at the spice bottle again, I actually used a cajun seasoning, which worked nicely. The "dough" was a bit crumbly, but pressed together nicely. The cookies had that perfect cookie shape and were nicely golden after 15 minutes. Thanks for posting this...I'll be making this again!
Oh, Bergy, you are GOOD! I just ate my first cookie, fresh out of the oven, and am still moaning! I used the cheeses I had on hand--1 part extra sharp cheddar, 1 part smoked cheddar, and one part strong blue cheese. I didn't have any cayenne, but did have hot pepper flakes, so ground them into a powder in my spice grinder. I didn't do a very good job of following instructions and ended up adding 1 tsp, instead of 1/2 tsp. I love spicy, so they're perfect for me, but I will definitely cut back to 1/2 tsp. next time. I have a feeling that this recipe is hard to ruin. It'll be a constant in my house from now on!
These were really good. I made them exactly as the recipe specified and my guests raved over them. I will definitely be making them again!
