The onion flavor was really strong on these when I made them and my family barely touched them. I put the leftovers in a baggy in the fridge and then tried them a couple of days later. The onion had mellowed and they tasted wonderful. I'd make these again but would bake them a day or two ahead of time. Read More

This was by far the WORST recipe ever. My daughter spit out the "penny" after two bites and the only one who enjoys them is the dog! DO NOT waste your time and money on this one! Read More

I only used 1/2 of the envelope of onion soup mix. These were well recieved at a party... and I had more than one request for the recipe. I made these about 1 week in advance and froze them. (They even taste yummy right out of the freezer!) Read More

I only bought mild cheddar but they were too cheesy for us. Maybe if you added a sauce for dunking. Read More

I used 1 c. flour 1 tsp. salt and 1 stick butter for 6 oz grated cheese. Refrigerate 1 hour minimum. I rolled it in waxed paper like you roll clay to make a snake then cut into cookies. Easy to work with and totally delicious. Read More
