2 sticks real butter, softened
2 cups sharp cheddar cheese
½-3/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
½ teaspoon salt
2 cups all purpose flour (I use Gold Medal)
2 cups crisp rice cereal
Beat together the butter, cheese, salt and pepper.
Remove beaters. Using hands, work in flour and cereal.
Shape into 1 inch balls. Flatten with a fork- criss cross- like a peanut butter cookie.
Bake on un-greased cookie sheet in 350 degree oven till golden on bottom side. (Don’t let it get too brown as rice crispies will burn.)
