    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]

    Cut this in half, and wish I hadn't. DELICIOUS and well enjoyed by all of us. Great combo of flavors, seeing That I thought this was somewhat of a differnt kind of recipe. Had mine in the oven for 15 minutes as posted. Perfect cooking time here. Made for Holiday tag.

    These were very tasty! I took them to a cook out at a friend's house and they were gobbled up in no time! They take a bit of work to actually get them rolled into a log shape as they want to crumble. But once I worked with it a while they came together! Thanks for sharing Wicked! Made for Photo tag!
