Cheese Krispies


1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened

2½ cups shredded extra-sharp cheddar cheese

2 cups all-purpose flour

¾ tsp. salt

½ tsp. cayenne pepper

2½ cups Rice Krispies

Pecan halves (optional)



Beat butter and cheese until blended. In another bowl, whisk flour, salt and cayenne pepper. Gradually beat into cheese mixture. Stir in Rice Krispies. If necessary, turn onto a lightly floured surface an knead 4-6 times, forming a stiff dough.


Divided dough in half and shape each into a 7 inch-long roll. Wrap and refrigerate 1 hour or overnight.


Preheat oven to 350°F. Unwrap and cut dough crosswise into ¼-inch slices. Place 1 inch apart on parchment-lined baking sheets. If desired, top each slice with a pecan half. Bake until edges are golden brown, 14-16 minutes. Remove from pans to wire rack to cool.


To make ahead: dough can be made 2 days in advance.

Freeze option: Freeze wrapped logs in an airtight container.  To use, unwrap frozen log and cut into slices. Bake as directed.
