When I went gluten free almost a month ago now I wondered what on earth I was supposed to eat for snacks! I love crackers and cheese. Cheesy goodness along with crispy crackers. Perfection in my book! Plus I love the little extra protein boost in the afternoon from the cheese. As an alternative I came up with these cheese crispies. They are crunchy, they are cheesy, and they are ridiculously easy to make. All you need is a single ingredient, CHEESE!
Shred up some good cheese. So far I've only tried this with sharp cheddar but another flavor may work. Use a bar pan (with sides!) and make little piles of the shredded cheese on the pan. Do not grease the pan and do not use very much cheese in each little pile.
Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for about 7 to 8 minutes or until the edges get a little brown and crispy. It's ok if the middles don't look "done" because they will crisp up as they cool.
Remove the Crispie from the pan and let it cool. You may want to let it cool on a paper towel to drain off some of the "grease" if that bothers you.
I store these in a bag in the fridge. They only last a few days in my house. Enjoy!
