KITCHEN SCOOP: Cheese Crisps

When it's time for a snack, are you tired of the same old bag of chips? Alicia Ross is here to help. Tonight, she has a recipe that puts a new twist on a classic snack that your whole family will love.

Chica's Cheese Crisps

1 stick butter, at room temperature
1 cup finely shredded extra sharp cheddar cheese
1 cup all purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup Rice Krispies ® cereal

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

2. In a medium mixing bowl, mix together the butter, cheese, flour, cayenne and salt until it forms a lightly stuck together ball. (There should be no individual ingredients in the bottom of the bowl. You may use your hands or a wooden spoon. )

3. Gently fold the rice cereal into the dough. Pinch off nickel-sized balls and roll tightly between your hands. Place on an ungreased cookie or baking sheet about an inch apart. When all the balls are rolled, flatten each ball with the tines of a fork. Bake for 15 minutes.

4. Cool crisps for 5 to 10 minutes before removing from the pan and serve. Leftovers may be stored in a tin for up to 1 week.
