20 minutes to prepare serves 12
- 3/4 cup grated fresh Parmesan cheese
- 1 1/2 teaspoons flour
- 1/2 teaspoon thyme
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Cover a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Stir together the Parmesan cheese, flour, thyme and pepper.
- Spoon the cheese mixture by tablespoons into little heaps on the parchment paper, about 3 inches apart from each other. Use the back of the spoon to flatten each heap.
- Bake the crisps for eight minutes or until golden brown. The crisps will still be slightly soft at this stage. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and cool completely.
- Remove the crisps from the parchment paper using a metal spatula. Serve immediately, or store between sheets of wax paper in an airtight container at room temperature.
