Since this blog will be going out near Christmas, I’m going to skip the heavy mental work and provide you with a heavy recipe instead.
They are addictive, high fat, and by the time you buy all of the butter and cheese you will be broke. However, they are super-delicious and worth it. The recipe was my Great-Great-Aunt Kate Thompson’s shared by my mom, Alice Mouton. Enjoy!
Aunt Kate’s Cheese Crisps
4 oz. sharp cheddar cheese, grated
7 tbsp. butter, softened to room temp.
4 drops Tabasco sauce
1 cup flour
1/4 tsp. red pepper
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup Rice Krispies
Mix cheese, butter and Tabasco
Sift flour, red pepper and salt and add to above. (You will probably need to use your hands to mix.)
Add Rice Krispies and form into balls the size of small walnuts. Put them on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake in a 325 degree oven for 5 minutes. Flatten with a fork that has been dipped into flour. Bake for 20 more minutes. Cool on cookie sheet. Makes about 40.
