I am so excited to share this Easy Homemade Parmesan Crisps Recipe with you because not only are they easy to make, but they are also delicious! My kids love these as a snack, and I also like to serve them with salads and as appetizers. Made with just ONE ingredient (yes, just one!) these are a quick and easy snack to make and they are always a hit.
8 ounces good quality Parmesan cheese
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Finely grate parmesan cheese into a bowl.
I like to line a large baking sheet with a non-stick pad or Parchment paper. This isn’t necessary, but definitely makes the process easier. If you make them directly on the pan, make sure to use a cooking spray.
Add a heaping teaspoon of cheese to the pan until you have six mounds, evenly spread apart.
Lightly press the mounds out until they are flat. Push together any stray pieces that might be sticking out.
Bake for 5-6 minutes or until the edges are golden brown but not all the way to the center. They should look a bit wet, and that’s just how you want them. If you bake them too long, they will be bitter, so just watch for those edges to begin to brown, you don’t want the entire crisp to be brown or they will be bitter.
Remove from oven. They will begin to firm up almost immediately.
Remove with a metal spatula and place on paper towels. Place another paper towel on top and gently press down to absorb the grease.
Sometimes I like to roll them. If you want to try this, be sure to do it before they harden, which happens quickly. You can free hand it, or use a large wooden spoon handle to roll them up.
Once they are completely cooled and crisp, you can store them in an airtight container between layers of wax paper for up to three days. Store in the refrigerator.
