Parmesan Crisps

From: EatingWell Magazine Spring 2003

These flavorful wafers, simply baked grated cheese, make a delightful accompaniment to soups or a sophisticated nibble to serve with drinks. As the only ingredient, the cheese matters here. Be sure to use imported Parmigiano-Reggiano (look for the name stenciled on the rind) and grate it yourself.

  • 1 1/4 cups freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, (2 1/4 ounces)

Preparation

  • Active

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 °F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or use a nonstick baking sheet. (Do not use cooking spray.)
  2. Mound level tablespoonfuls of cheese about 2 inches apart on the baking sheet. Bake until the cheese is melted, soft and a very light golden color, about 6 minutes. Remove from the oven and do not disturb until completely cooled and firm to the touch, about 20 minutes. Using a thin spatula or knife, lift the crackers from the baking sheet.
  • Make Ahead Tip: Store in an airtight container for up to 4 days.

Super Easy Added a little coconut flour to absorb some of the oil from the cheese, and some crushed red pepper to give it a kick Pros: Easy.
