Day 3: Savory Cheddar Crisps

Since when does every holiday goodie need to be sweet? Sometimes you just need something savory, cheesy, and rich. Enriched with cheese, herbs and spices, these rich buttery crackers boast an exceptional flavor and crunch that simply can’t be duplicated by store-bought varieties. (Think little yummy fishy-type crackers, but for grown ups.)

Makes 4 dozen crisps.

3/4 cup butter, softened
8 oz sharp cheddar cheese, shredded (preferably "cold pack" like Imperial or Black Diamond)
1 teaspoon "Franks Red Hot" or Tobasco sauce
3 tablespoons rosemary, finely diced
1 1/2 cups flour
5 cups Rice Crispies cereal

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a large bowl, cream together butter and cheese.
3. Add tabasco and rosemary. Blend well.
4. With a spatula fold in flour and Rice Crispies until well combined.
5. Roll dough into balls 1.5" in diameter, place on ungreased cookie sheet.
6. Flatten balls slightly with a fork.
7. Bake for 15 - 18 minutes until lightly browned.
