Prep Time: 10 min Total Time: 35 min Yield: 8 Serving
Nutrition Facts: 240 calories 9 grams fat
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper
1 stick (4 oz) unsalted butter, softened
3 cups grated sharp Cheddar cheese (12 oz)
1 Tbsp chopped fresh thyme
1 cup Rice Krispies
Preheat the oven to 350°.
In a food processor, combine the flour, salt, and red pepper; pulse until blended. Add the butter, cheese and thyme and pulse just until a
dough forms; bits of cheese should still be visible.
Transfer the dough to a large bowl and gently fold in the Rice Krispies. Working with a scant Tbsp at a time, roll the dough into balls. Place the balls about 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten slightly with your fingertips into 1 1/2 inch rounds. Bake the crisps for about 15 minutes, or until firm to the touch and just beginning to brown.
Let cool on the sheets for 1 to 2 minutes, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely. Store in airtight containers for up to 1 day or freeze, well-wrapped, for up to 1 month.
Makes about 3 1/2 dozen.

"I made this for New Year's Eve. Followed the recipe exactly & it came out just like the photo-but I was a bit disappointed with it. Some guests enjoyed it, some I think didn't as they didn't go back for seconds. Husband commented yuck. I wasn't a big fan either, would rate it as just okay, not worth the effort. I'll be going back to the normal cob loaf dips, much prefer those. Won't make this again." - sherri3802
