Easiest Appetizer Ever

This is truly the easiest appetizer I make. It’s made out of one ingredient. These lacy cheese crisps are so delicious. People never believe me when I tell them they’re homemade. Well here you go:

Lacy Cheese Crisps

Ingredient:

1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) packaged sharp cheddar cheese (I use Sargento’s brand)

Steps:

  1. Adjust oven racks to low and middle positions and preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

  2. Spoon about 1 Tbsp of cheese onto the sheet and spread into a round single layer. Repeat with remaining cheese keeping cheese disks about one inch apart. (You should get about 12 wafers on a large sheet.)

  3. Bake until crisps stop bubbling, 9 to 10 minutes, switching sheets after 5 minutes if they appear to be cooking unevenly.

  4. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

  5. Stored in a airtight tin, the crisps will keep for 1 month.

These crisps are from one of my favorite cookbooks, Pam Anderson’s Perfect Recipes for Having People Over. I know people say they’re not buying cookbooks any more because all the recipes are on line. I get that but this cookbook is so special because with every recipe, the author has a section on when to serve the item, how to vary it, how far ahead can I make it, and what to do with leftovers. This book is worth it’s weight in gold.

Yup this recipe frequently shows up at my parties. I think you should make this for your next gathering and invite me over to make sure you did it right 😉! Happy entertaining!
