These cheddary wafers get their pleasing crackle from a secret ingredient: Rice Krispies. Courtney Waddell's grandmother may have snagged the recipe at her bridge game.    More Tasty Snacks  

How to Make It

Step 1    

Preheat the oven to 350°. Position 2 racks in the middle and lower thirds of the oven. In a bowl, beat the butter and cheddar at medium speed until combined. Add the flour, cayenne and salt and beat until a crumbly dough forms. Add the rice cereal and beat briefly to combine.

Step 2    

Form level tablespoons of the dough into balls; place on 4 large baking sheets. Using a fork, press a crosshatch pattern into the balls, pressing them into 2-inch rounds.

Step 3    

Bake the crisps 2 sheets at a time for about 25 minutes, until they are lightly browned; shift the pans from top to bottom and front to back halfway through baking for even cooking. Let cool completely.
