This rich, crispy snack reminds us that rice cereal isn't just for breakfast. It adds a crunchy texture to this familiar cheese straw treat.
4 cups freshly grated sharp Cheddar cheese
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup butter, softened
1 tablespoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
2 cups crisp rice cereal
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 350°. Beat cheese, flour, butter, salt, and ground red pepper at medium speed with an electric mixer 30 to 60 seconds or until mixture forms a ball. Gently stir in cereal. Shape into 1-inch balls, and place 1 inch apart on ungreased baking sheets. Flatten each dough ball with a fork dipped in flour. Bake, in batches, 25 to 28 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer wafers to wire racks, and cool completely.
