Over the years I have gleaned many a good recipe from my assistant, and this is one.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

The perfect savory accompaniment for your next brunch or cocktail party! These cheese wafers are savory, buttery, and full of cheese. There is a slight crunch from the Rice Krispies that makes these crackers a little interesting and different from other recipes. If you like things a little spicy, add more cayenne pepper.
