Ingredients (makes about 2 dozen):
- 1 package of MacLaren's Imperial cheese, softened (you can't substitute for another cheese so look for this one in the grocery store - it's in a red tub with a black lid - should be where you find sour cream)
- 1 cup flour
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 1 tsp mustard powder
- 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
- 2 cups Rice Krispies
- Optional variation #1: swap Worcestershire for 1 tsp smoked paprika and 1/2 tsp cayenne
- Optional variation #2: swap Worcestershire and mustard powder for 1 tsp Madras curry powder and 1/2 tsp cayenne (I think I like this option best, though the first option is delicious too)
- Preaheat oven to 350°F. In a bowl, combine all the ingredients except the Rice Krispies. Once the mixture is well incorporated, blend in the Rice Krispies.
- Form small balls on the cookie sheet and then flatten out with a fork (they will spread just a little). Cook for 10 minutes. Remove from cookie sheet, cool until crisped up, and enjoy!
These make a great option to traditionally sweet holiday cookies. But they're not just for the holidays! Make them anytime - they'd be perfect as part of an appetizer platter with some charcuterie or antipasto. Store in an air tight container ... they should keep for about 2 weeks.
