Parmesan crisps

READY IN: 11mins
Recipe by Claire de Luna

Grate some cheese and after three minutes in the oven, you have a beautiful appetizer for a glass of wine. The cheese melts into a lacy circle, and the fresh chives add color and flavor. Try other fresh herbs or freshly ground pepper for variety. I found this in the Chicago Sun-Times Food Section and was impressed with how well these turn out!

My new addiction! so very good, I used both pepper and the chives, no butter, the parchment worked fine without it. Thank you very much!
