- 1 cup margarine or 1 cup butter
- 2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, grated
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon mustard powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 cups crispy rice cereal
- Cream butter and cheese.
- Add salt, mustard, and pepper.
- Add flour a little at a time, then rice cereal.
- Form into small balls and flatten.
- Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes.
Sorry - but not impressed. I expected something like a cheez-it but the texture wasn't pleasing - especially to kids and the flavor was a bit warming but not much cheese at all. Admittingly, I think I also made them too big - about the size of a quarter and then flattened them.
When I made these the first time I was so disappointed but hate to waste food so I let them sit for a day or 2 in a ziplock in the fridge. Then I tried them on the side of a white bean chicken chili. WOW!!! Perfect!!The flavor just needed to develop!
The recipe was longer than 10 minutes prep and yields about 70 pennies. It would have been helpful to know whether to grease cookies sheets or not. Hard to handle dough because of flour and cheese mixed with the butter. Worth the effort. Only cooked half of the recipe because of time constrants, but have half in refrig to make again.
