    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    These take only minutes to prepare on your food processor, better make a ton of these buttery thin crackers, I assure you they won't even make it to the freezer lol! The dough can be frozen the wrapped tightly in plastic wrap then in foil and frozen for up to 3 months. The garlic powder is optional, if you are a garlic-lover then add it in!

      I am kinda on the fence with this recipe. These were very good, but I found these a bit on the rich side. I did a tester batch in my little toaster oven and thought for appearance sake that they looked better cooked on both sides. These were made up for 2 different occasions and my guests would have some, but then gravitate towards other appetizers. I think there are other appitizer recipes I would try before I came back to this one. Sorry, Kitten

      This has become a "go to" recipe for me when having a party or family holiday. I love that I can make them ahead and freeze them! I make them extra garlicky! It's almost time to make the Easter batch!

      Loved these! They were best while warm, but still very good cold. This makes quite a few, but 5 of us ate them all--that's how addictive they are. These will be a staple at virtually every party I have in the future. They are so easy to make, and the pepper really enhances the buttery, cheesy goodness. Thanks for yet another winner, Kitten!
