Tea for Two-sday ~ Lacy Cheddar Crisps

For today's tea posting, I'm giving you the recipe for a snack that is included in my Thanksgiving Menu. But I have also served it with tea. This picture was taken of my attempt at using a 6-cheese blend. It really works best and comes out prettiest with sharp cheddar cheese - much crispier, too.

These can be used for an appetizer, but are also nice as a savory offering with tea. They are a nice, delicate cheddar snack.

Lacy Cheddar Crisps
1 and 1/2 cups (6 oz) packaged shredded sharp cheddar cheese*

Adjust oven racks to low and middle positions and heat oven to 425 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

Spoon about 1 tablespoon cheese onto one sheet, then spread into a round with your fingertips so that cheese is more or less in a single layer. Repeat with remaining cheese, keeping cheese disks about 1 inch or so apart. (You should get about 12 wafers on a large sheet.)

Bake until crisps stop bubbling, 9 to 10 minutes, switching sheets after 5 minutes if they appear to be cooking unevenly. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

*The packaged shredded cheese works better than freshly grated since the packaged is less oily.

These are a big hit and don't last long. I hope you get the chance to try them out with a cup of tea!


  1. Hmmm, I don't know that seems pretty hard lol. I've always wanted to try making those but end up using the cheese for something else before I do lol. I LOVE cheese.
    I'd love to have tea with you on Tuesdays and then come and eat Chocolate on Fridays lol.
    Hugs my friend.

  2. Mmmm. Sounds yummy. I might have to try it. Thanks for sharing today, my friend!

  3. I was craving cheese in the beginning of my pregnancy, but now the thought of straight up baked cheese makes me a little green in the face! If I was in a "normal" state, I bet I would have LOVED this!


  4. Sorry I had to do it. I am sending an award your way. Come and get it my friend.

  5. Cool! I was looking for an easy appetizer to serve on Christmas day. Thanks:-)

  6. These are just cheese? You don't add any flour or anything? Very interesting!
