    Seasoned Cook's Note:

    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.

      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.

      Great flavor!! Only put the full teaspoon of cayenne powder if you really I like hot stuff. I do so I put the whole teaspoon. I think I mixed the butter and cheese wrong because my mix came out very dry. Next time I will use a blender and a little more butter. But this is a really great recipe, and I will try to get it right next time

      I'm so glad I finally got around to making these tasty little delights. I wasn't sure how well I liked them at first, I thought the worcestershire sauce seemed a little over powering, but they really grew on me and now I can't stop eating them They would be wonderful with a glass of wine or a cocktail. Thanks for posting this great recipe!
