- 4 ounces mascarpone cheese (125 grams)
- 2 cups cheddar cheese, coarsely grated
- 1⁄2 cup parmesan cheese, grated
- 1 egg white
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 cup Rice Krispies (sugarless, puffed rice cereal)
- 1⁄2 cup graham cracker crumbs, very finely ground
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1⁄4 teaspoon chili powder
- Place all ingredients into a large bowl. Initially, work through the ingredients with your fingers to distribute evenly, then start working with the heel of your hand, incorporating dry ingredients into mascarpone/egg white to bind. This will take nearly 5 minutes - so don't give up! And don't worry about keeping the rice krispies whole, just smush right down on those babies and work the dough!
- Separate the dough into 2 pieces and shape each piece into a firm, 6-inch log. Roll up tightly in plastic cling film and refrigerate a minimum of 4 hours before proceeding with recipe.
- Preheat oven to 400°F Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Remove first roll of dough. With a sharp knife, cut the dough log into 1/4-inch-thick slices (no thicker!). Place slices on baking sheet and bake in the middle rack of the preheated oven for 18-20 minutes. Repeat with second pan, if necessary. When done baking, place both pans in oven, staggering one up, the other low down, and leave in hot, turned-off oven for another 40 minutes. This will ensure you have a nice, dry, crisp wafer, with a rich, brown colour.
- Remove and allow to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
Unique for sure. I felt like these could have used a little salt and a touch more cayenne pepper. A lot of work, but they were good. Good luck :)
