Cheese Wafers (Straws, Cookies)

READY IN: 32mins
Recipe by Seasoned Cook

A WONDERFUL cheesy crispy cookie for a snack or make into straws and have with soup. Well seasoned for the "just right" taste and flavor. Do include all seasonings as they enhance the flavor. We are a third generation family enjoying these cheese wafers or cheese krispies as some of us call them. A great appetizer for parties or weddings. They go well with coffee, fruit drink or a cocktail. Note: Put only 1/2 teaspoon cayenne powder if you don't like it very hot.

Top Review by Marni Ulch

This is a great recipe for a quick, savory snack. My Sunday School class raved about the flavor profiles: garlic, heat from the cayenne powder, tang from the Worcestershire sauce, and the crunch from rice krispies (and some added finely chopped pecans). I will definitely make them again soon - with so much leftover rice krispies, I can't think of a better way to use them up! Addendum: I liked them much better by baking them longer than the specified time.
