I did it!

Happy Wednesday to you!  Here we are at the middle of the week already!  From this point, the week seems to fly along for me. 

I have managed to accomplish a small cooking project this week, using some of that cheese I featured in a post last week.

2 sticks soft butter
2 cups flour
2 cups grated sharp Cheddar cheese
2 cups Rice Krispies
Red pepper to taste (about 1/8 teaspoon cayenne, if you want these to be spicy)
- Mix all together and form balls; flatten slightly with fork.  Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes.  Makes about 50 small wafers.  (I had 52.)

On pans, ready for the oven.

Out of the oven, cooling on racks.
Although this was the first time for me to make these, the recipe  has been in my files for many years.  I have been working through my files to determine which ones I want to keep, and freezer space is becoming tight!:-) 

Now that I have a box of Rice Krispies, I will have to see just what will be next!:-)

This is the day for me to have these stitches removed from my finger!  I hope the doctor finds that the healing has been satisfactory.  

Thank you for reading.  I really appreciate your comments.


  1. Those look really interesting, and easy. So, what is the review? Are they tasty?

  2. Congrats!! They look amazing. If you need help testing them let me know :)

    Hope the stitch removal goes well!

  3. I would love to test these. I am a new follower. I hope you'll follow Uptown Acorn too!

  4. I hope your finger is all better today and you get your stitches out just fine. I buy my box of rice krispies to make recipes with and next thing I know the kids have eaten them all, if I was buying it for them to eat they wouldn't touch it. :) I will try this recipe it looks good,

  5. These sound delicious, have to make a batch for the holidays. Maybe sooner. ;-) xo

  6. Hmmmmm.....I just might have to try these, too! They certainly sound easy enough, and it would be a quick snack to have on hand. Thanks for the share.

    By this time, I'm sure you are back from the doctor's office, and I hope your finger has been freed from those stitches. Have a great afternoon!

  7. I love anything with cheese in it. I think I would love these.

    I hope your finger has healed satisfactorily.

  8. Nellie, Those cheese snacks look very tempting. Hope you are healing well also. You asked me if our snow was rather early...yes. We still have green leaves on the trees as they are just starting to turn colors, the past week. I do not want a big long boring winter...know what I mean. xoxo,Susie

  9. I hope your finger is healed well too. I love the combination of rice crispy with the cheese. You'll have to let us know what you think.

  10. Hi Nellie , I will have to try these , they are quick and easy to make , I have 4 small kids in school and they wouls love them . Hope everything went well with your stitches removal today and thanks for the visit and sharing :).

  11. I'm thinking of you! Good luck with the stitches!

  12. That looks easy enough. Thanks for the recipe. I think that I could handle that.

  13. Interesting combination. I usually think of marshmallows with rice krispies.
    I too have lots of recipes sitting around that sound so good but haven't tried yet. Maybe I'll go through all of mine too. A good winter project. : )

  14. Hip Hooray Nellie! You did a GREAT job! One day I plan on going through all those "someday" recipes but...

    I hope you made out GREAT at the doctor today. I can't believe you managed to make these Cheese Wafers even with your finger smashed!

    There are some cool Halloween recipes using Rice Krispies. I saw one for Candy Corn Rice Kripsies on Pinterest. If you want the link, let me know I pinned it to my Candy Corn board, lol...

    Thanks for sharing, Nellie...

    P.S. Candy Corn Day is October 30th!

  15. Those look good and they are a bit different.

    Hope the stitch removal was an easy feat- xo Diana
