These tasty morsels are delicious! I cut the recipe in half, as I knew I would love them! I also used a habanero jack cheese, 'cause we like it HOT and I wanted to see how they would taste! It was wonderful and spicy, but not hot...Thanks for sharing, wicked cook! I'll be making these again soon!

Usually when I see cayenne pepper I want to reduce the amount, but for this recipe I didn't & was very happy that I'd followed the ingredients exactly ~ VERY, VERY TASTY TREATS that disappeared in no time at all! This is definitely a keeper of a recipe & these crispies made a great new addition to my finger food counter! Thanks, much, for posting the recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in 1-2-3 Hit Wonders tag]
