It Doesn’t Get any more Southern than this!

16 Nov

I made cheese crisps this afternoon. Remember when your grandmother would have her Circle meeting parties or Bridge games at her house? Mine always served these. It’s always standard fare for Southern ladies’ teas or church meetings! This recipe comes from a precious little cookbook assembled by the Baptist church ladies in my home town. I have had this for years and years. I don’t know how many of the ladies are even still around today but it’s still a go to cookbook for me. It’s called ‘Meetin’ and Eatin’ and I think that says it all for most church meetings. I don’t know of any that don’t include some kind of refreshments.

Cheese Crisps

2 sticks butter
2 c sharp cheddar cheese
2 c plain flour
2 c Rice Krispies
½ tsp cayenne pepper

 Cream butter and cheese.  Add cayenne pepper and stir.  Add flour and Rice Krispies.  Roll into small balls then press with a fork.  Cook at 400 degrees for 10 minutes.
