Cheese Wafers... Cheese Straws... Cheese Crisps... they're all the same delicious thing!

Looking for a delicious appetizer for your next party or a great afternoon snack?  Look no further.  I made these a couple of weeks ago and put them in a cookie jar on the counter.  Gone!  (A few survived until Superbowl Sunday.)

This family-friendly recipe includes Rice Krispies cereal and cheese -- sounds good right?!  I called Dad with the suggestion that he try it for his Superbowl LI outing.  He did.  We both liked it!

Nell's Cheese Wafers

Dad's Awesome Crisps

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 pound sharp Cheddar cheese (Cracker Barrel brand is recommended, but I used store brand)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 sticks margarine, melted
2 cups Rice Krispies
Dash of Tabasco sauce

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In large mixing bowl combine flour, cheese, salt and cayenne. Add margarine, Rice Krispies and Tabasco. Roll into small balls and place on ungreased cookie sheets. Press flat using a fork dipped in flour. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until beginning to brown around the edges. Yields 4-6 dozen, depending on how small you roll them. I rolled mine just under an inch in diameter and got about 4 dozen. (Wafers may be frozen, which is nice to know!)

I found the recipe on, I think, Pinterest.  But after several clicks I ended up on Angela McRae's food blog called Tea with Friends.  It sounds southern to me; I better dig around a bit; ya never know when you'll find a new favorite! 🙂

And here's Angela's (I guess) picture -- I would say ours turned out just like the image; no "Pinterest Fail" here!
