Reviews for Cheese Crisps
"These are yummy and addicting but NOT if you don't like that little kick of cayenne. Without the cayenne I think they would be too bland. I absolutely love them and mostly everyone I make them for does as well. So easy to make."
"I got mixed reviews on these. Personally, I thought they were almost addicting. I loved the little crunch."
"i think i did something wrong because it was hard to get this to stick together and it was crumbly. however, after cooking, it stuck together really well and was very delicious. i would definitely make this again!"
"People always gobble these up when I baked them. I see them try them not really knowing what they are and come back for a couple more! I like to make them up and freeze the balls before baking, then when we want something savory, its as quick as heating up the oven to have nibbles! GREAT STUFF"
