Super simple but can be spiced up if you like with cayenne or other spices. Store in an airtight container, layered between waxed paper.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

  • Combine Parmesan cheese and thyme leaves in a bowl. Drop heaping teaspoonfuls of the mixture onto the lined baking sheets, spacing them 2 inches apart. Lightly press with your fingers to flatten them into circles 2 inches in diameter.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until slightly browned and crisp, 8 to 10 minutes. Cool slightly on the baking sheets, about 2 minutes. Loosen edges with a spatula and lift off the parchment paper. Transfer to wire racks and let cool completely until firm, about 10 minutes.

These are so easy to make, and I really loved the addition of fresh thyme in this version! These turn out so dainty and elegant. I baked mine on a silicone baking mat, and then removed to a paper towel lined baking rack after about 3 minutes to finish the cooling. I recommend the paper towel, as they can be somewhat greasy. Just helps to remove some of the excess grease. I'll be using these to top our caesar salad tonight for dinner! Thanks for the recipe! Read More

They were very tasty but they never got to crunchy status just on the edges. And I cooked them longer than the recipe for crispness. I'll keep trying. It's worth it. Read More

I've been working on variations of this all afternoon since my husband loves crispy Parmesan crackers and I think I've perfected it! Add at least 1 Tbs. flour for a cup of cheese (this soaks up the liquid from the melted cheese and the crackers won't be crispy without it). Spread out as thin as you can and bake at 400 for two minutes, then switch to broil until they are as golden as you like (I did 1-1/2 minutes). Watch like a hawk cause they'll burn fast! Use a new sheet of parchment paper for each batch, otherwise you'll smoke up your kitchen! And don't use cooking spray, there's no need for it .:) Read More

Simple and delicious. You can easily add a slightly different flavor by changing the thyme to cracked pepper parsley or whatever you love. Read More

Simple and easy to make. I also added garlic powder and some red pepper flakes. A tiny bit hotter than I expected but very good. Will make again for sure. Read More

These were fantastic!! I only used 2 ounces of parmesan cheese as there are only two of us and I wasn't sure if they would be any good. I added 1 tsp each of dried thyme, rosemary and garlic powder. I ended up with 9 crisps. Mine didn't come out greasy at all...maybe because of the dried herbs? They may have soaked up any oils from the cheese. My husband really liked these as well. Will definitely be making these again only next time I will make more as we didn't have any left over. Read More
