Cheddar Walnut Crisps

Lynnda Cloutier


This version of the Frico (the crispy cheep wafer from the Fruili region of Italy) these are the best. It's simplicity itself; The cheese can be quickly grated in a food processor, and a batch can be made in less than 10 minutes. The crisps can be made up to 4 days ahead. The only trick is to use parchment paper. source unknown
