Ingredients

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

Directions

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.

"Good but I think these buffalo chicken breasts are better grilled - slightly brown on each side and then baste generously with sauce turning once or twice until cooked through. But, this is a good substitute for nights when firing up the grill would not be optimal. Made several tweaks. Also recommend keeping some sauce on the side for dipping." - mrsoul51

"It's as good as everyone says! I used a boneless chuck roast (3 lb) and cut the ranch dressing in half. I added an additional 1/4 cup water. I cooked it 9 hours. It came out very tender, and with a gravy that was superb! Served with mashed potatoes and steamed fresh garden peas. Thanks, yooper! This is one that I will repeat!!" - mizznezz
