These crisps are terrific to float on top of Creamy Tomato Soup or Creamy Broccoli Soup for an extra kick of flavor.

How to Make It

I've made these for years. Sometimes with the pepper and sometimes without. They are the perfect low-carb snack. They're also terrific used as a cracker. Put your favorite topping on them and enjoy!

I didn't have parchment paper, so I used a silicone muffin tin. In the oven, the timing was hit or miss, but I tried the microwave, and in about 30 seconds (for 4 crisps) I had perfect crisps. Just listen for them to stop making a popping sound. Perfectly done, perfectly shaped, and my kitchen stayed cool. Quick and easy.

ok so what am I doing wrong?  Mine didnt come out like a cracker or crisp like.  But rather it was more like the cheese on top of old pizza.  Just thinner.  I want the cracker consistency and Ive done this twice withthe same results.  So what am i doing wrong?  Has anyone else experienced this disappointment or is it just me?  Taste good, house smells good, but i just dont have the cracker....
