I use my muffin tins--small, regular, or the "muffin top"-one to get perfectly round crisps. No parchment paper needed. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I always use parchment paper so easy and these fly at Christmas :D item not reviewed by moderator and published
These are a great go-to appetizer! I used parchment paper - came out totally fine. I added a tbsp flour - helps make crispy. What's great with these - you can add different ingreds to zest it up. I've used rosemary with crushed red pepper; thyme with cayenne - both were tasty. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I used a Silpat on a baking sheet and after almost 10 min at 400 the cheese hadn't melted, the crisps had only gotten light brown on the edges but the cheese was still dry and in shreds (it never melted and bubbled together to make the lacy pattern). The second pan I put in without a Silpat but with the cheese directly on the non-stick surface. Those came out perfect after 4-5 min! Just in case someone runs into the same problem I did try a non-stick sheet without the Silpat. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These are amazing! Yum! Crispy and light and delicious-and easy to make. item not reviewed by moderator and published
A couple of things I did differently. On a budget, I didn't want to spend a lot on fancy cheese to grate, so I bought what was pre-grated, generic, on sale. I spooned out about a tbl. an inch a part, sprinkled on red pepper flake and let bake on a parchment paper-covered cookie sheet until the edges were light brown. This is important, because if you don't, they won't firm up and will be rubbery, then I carefully loosened them with a fork. They didn't look like hers, but they were still cute. Then I carefully placed them to cool on a rack, which helped to crisp them up. It's important not to make these too far out in advance as they do get rubbery after about two hours, so they're definitely an appetizer you want to eat with an hour of making them. They went over really well. And when you're buying the cheese by he bag at only $3, it make a good couple dozen, not too expensive for a party appetizer. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I loved it and mixed in a pinch of cayenne to the cheese and broiled it instead of baking and it came out golden brown. As soon as it came out of broiler, take tip of spatula and work it off parchment paper. I also added some chopped green olives on top. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I actually discovered how to make these by accident when cheese spilt over on something I was baking in the oven. Great to see a recipe to something I thought was a good mistake. Easy to make with any kind of cheese and guests LOVE them. Very simple! Hard to mess up melted cheese! Not sure why so many people have written bad reviews. It's obvious with so many rating a recipe 5 stars that the ones rating it a 1 must being doing it wrong? Wonderful with good Italian bread and a glass of wine! Again, easy with almost any kind of cheese. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Silpat cooking sheets are the key and this is such a simple recipe. I only use parmigiano reggiano for these with a micro grater. Whether you pat them out thinly for web-like crisps or let them stay packed down for a thicker crisp they turn out great. If you slip them off as soon as they come out of the oven and lay them over a small dish so they drape over it to cool you will get a beautiful nest for cacio e pepe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Terrible recipe. I followed the exact directions but could not get them off the paper. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Well then, you didn't follow the exact directions as she says "silpat" is crucial to making them. item not reviewed by moderator and published
No, she didn't: "a silicone or parchment lined baking sheet and lightly pat down. A silicone baking sheet is highly recommended." Hardly the same as 'silpat is crucial. item not reviewed by moderator and published
