  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, combine cheese, butter or margarine, flour, crispy rice cereal, salt, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, and black pepper. Mix well and form small balls out of the dough (the dough will yield approximately 55 balls). Flatten each ball of dough with your fingertips until the dough is very thin and arrange the discs on a cookie sheet.
  3. Bake for 12 minutes; or until the Cheese Crispies are golden and slightly brown around the edges. Enjoy!

My mother-in-law made these for years and I have taken over since her death. Our family loves these so much. One difference in our recipe is that we use about 1/2 of the cheese that this recipe calls for....I don't know, but this might cut down on the "greasiness" that some reviewers wrote about. And they really are "addictive".

I tried out a "test" recipe before making them for company, good thing I did, they were terrible. Too greasy and too floury tasting.

I just wanted to add my vote for these crispies. I took it to a luncheon today, and everyone raved about it and wanted a copy of the recipe. One lady is already going to make this appetizer for a party tomorrow night! YUM!

I first ate this at my wedding shower in 1966. My mother-in-law used it all of the time. As an appetizer she left them in balls. To serve with salads, she pressed them with a fork like peanut butter cookies. This is the exact recipe I have and it is wonderful!

These were tasty but very greasy.

I made these for a party and everyone loved them. Pretty quick to make

This recipe is absolutely wonderful! Being a cheese-aholic, I knew that it would be. It is so easy and quick. While preparing a birthday dinner for friends, I quickly threw it together to serve as a pre-dinner nibble, and they loved it. Careful though: It these crispies are so addictive, they could have an effect on your weight!
