I wanted a recipe for a cracker I could make in an old set of ice-box-cookie-molds. This is perfect! I made a batch according to the recipe and another one with a milder cheese and different seasoning. Both were great. One batch needed a little water to form a dough. (Perhaps it depends on the moisture content of the cheese.) Both batches sliced cleanly with no crumbling and held their shapes fine. Nice non-sweet treat!


We entertain alot and these are quick and easy to make. When we're expecting lots of people I have a jar on our bar filled with these. Once baked, they also freeze well. Just pop them in the oven for a few minutes to crisp them up.


I made this for our wine tasting group and it was a hit! The only changes I made to the recipe were to increase the amount of red pepper flakes to aprox. 2 teaspoons and to microwave the butter so it was halfway melted. I had better luck with the dough this way. Excellent recipe!
