"Another Winner. Made up 1/2 of this recipe yesterday. It yielded me 9 small crisps. I used parchment paper and for good measure I lightly greased it. I used delowensteins suggestion and used cheddar cheese and sour cream potato chips. I also grated my own good quality cheddar cheese. No crumbling mixture and they are fragile. They spread while baking and allow to cool slightly before removing. Serve immediately and use room temperature ingredients.

These would be great with soups or salads. Want to kick it up dust with chili powder or taco spice mix. We really eanjoyed theses cheese nibblers.
Volunteer FE."

"I recall preparing this recipe when it first appeared in TOH! I had greased my baking sheet(s)

and the removal of these little nibblers was easier for me to remove when greasing the baking sheets. I also used a pastry blender to blend all the ingredients together! I didn't have too much ground mustard, so I combined what I did have with powdered Ranch dressing mix. I do find that it's also interesting and fun to substitute the flavored potato chips, rather than use just ordinary potato chips! ( I also purchased smaller bags of potato chips (sour cream and onion and Cheddar/sour cream flavored potato chips) to prepare this recipe again for a wedding shower on 10/10/14! I used the sour cream and onion potato chips, though! I've taken these nibblers to functions at our Chapel, along with spreads or cheese balls and they've gone over well! What a simple and delicious recipe! Thank you for sharing this recipe, Janis Plourde! delowenstein p.s. I DID get LESS than the amount called for in the recipe-I got 1-1/2 dozen little nibblers! This dough IS fragile and I have had to handle it carefully to get the nibblers to hold together by pressing in the palm of my hand after molding into the balls!"

"This was okay, but I will not be making it again. Most of them did not stick together, the taste was mediocre, and I'm not sure how something is supposed to turn "golden" and be done when the dough starts out golden..."

"My family is big on snack crackers and I love trying new recipes. However, this one just didn't do it for us. I had to toss most of it."

"I made these yesterday and I always bring my first time recipes to the VFW for their opinion. These were gone within minutes and they wanted me to make more for our Memorial Day potluck. They are in the oven as I write. Thanks so much. They said these taste better than Cheese Nips."
