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.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or use a nonstick baking sheet. (Do not use cooking spray.)

  • 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.
