Cheese Crisps

Makes 8 or 9.

Note: If you want to change up the flavor, mix a pinch of a dried herb or ground spice into the grated cheese before you bake them.

• 1/2 c. grated Parmesan, Cheddar or Manchego cheese (about 2 oz.)


Heat oven to 350 degrees, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Form about 1 tablespoon of the cheese into a thin circle on the parchment paper; repeat with the remaining cheese, leaving 2 inches between circles.

Bake until the cheese is golden brown and lacy, 5 to 10 minutes. Cool on the baking sheet, then serve.
