Makes about 55 crisps
2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
1/2 pound extra sharp Cheddar, grated
2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cayenne
2 cups Rice Crispies
In a bowl with an electric mixer cream the butter with the cheddar and beat until light and fluffy. Add the flour, salt, and cayenne a little at a time, beating until well combined. Add the cereal and beat until just combined. Form the mixture into balls (about a heaping tsp) and place 2 inches apart on buttered baking sheets. Flatten each ball with the back of a floured fork. Bake in batches at 350 for 15 minutes or until golden.
