    Bake 12 to 15 minutes, until slightly golden brown. Let cool on baking sheet for five minutes then transfer to wire rack to cool completely. Serve immediately or store in air-tight container until ready to serve. The cheesy bites will keep at room temperature for two days or in the refrigerator for up to a week.
