Yield: Lots! 100-150 small crackers
2 Cups all-purpose flour
Salt, a pinch
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 pound sharp cheddar cheese, grated and at room temperature
1 cup unsalted butter, melted
2 cups Rice Krispies cereal
- Preheat oven to 300 degrees
- Combine flour, salt and cayenne in a large bowl; add cheddar cheese. Toss until cheese is coated. Pour melted butter over flour/cheese mixture while stirring until all is moist and crumbly. Add rice cereal and knead or work in by hand until dough is well blended. Patience! This takes a little while. Mixture will be on the dry side.
- Roll dough by hand into ½-¾ inch balls; arrange on a baking sheet. Flatten with a flat-bottomed glass that has been sprayed with Pam.
- Bake in the preheated oven until light and crispy, about 30-35 minutes.
