These are very similar to the cheese biscuits that a dear friend used to always make for parties. Delicious. Adjust the heat to your liking.

Oh wow... these are addictive. They are buttery and crunchy with the texture of a crisp cookie. The crisped rice cereal adds the crunch. Savory from the cheese with a slight kick of red pepper, these will be great for just about any occasion. Easy to make with simple ingredients, we promise you won't be able to eat just one. If you're sensitive to spice, cut back on the red pepper. They do have a slight kick. The Test Kitchen

Ingredients

  • 1 tsp
    cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp
    salt
  • 3 c
    sifted all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 c
    butter, softened to room temperature
  • 3 c
    finely grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 1/2 c
    crispy rice cereal

How to Make Cheese Krispies

Step-by-Step

  1. Add the cayenne pepper and salt to the sifted flour.
  2. Cut the butter into the flour mix.
  3. Work the mixture between your fingers to produce a cornmeal-like consistency.
  4. Add the cheese and crispy rice cereal.
  5. Continue to combine with your fingers. The more you mix, the more butter-like the dough will become and will better hold the crispies together.
  6. Roll the dough into 1 inch balls, working in your hands to press the balls together.
  7. Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
  8. Press the balls flat with a fork or the bottom of a flour covered glass.
  9. Bake in a preheat oven at 350 for 15 minutes or until golden.
  10. Allow to completely cool.
  11. Store in an airtight container.
