      We love these. We prefer to use sharp cheddar or even extra sharp chessar for the flavor. We also like to use this to replace the Cheez-its in Chex Mix. We roll them out very thinly, cut on baking sheet, but not seperate and then bake. If you add a few drops of food coloring, then they don't look anemic in the cereal mix. I've never used cream- I use whole milk (but use a little less) and increase the butter a bit.

      I forgot to mention that my Whole Foods store where I shop did not have potato starch. I substitued tapioca starch and it worked just fine.
