I made these the other night and damn near died from the buttery goodness that was swarming around my tongue.
Heat oven to 350°
Take an 8 oz block of Parmesean cheese and finely grate it.
Place a sheet of parchment paper on a cookie sheet. (DO NOT use waxed paper it is NOT the same)
Place one ounce of the cheese (about two tablespoons) on the parchment paper (there will be room to fit all eight in two rows. Using a regular metal spoon from the drawer, lightly and evenly spread the cheese to form a small circle that is about 1/8 inch thick.
Place in the oven and melt until the cheese is golden brown. Do not over cook. In my oven it takes about 6 minutes.
Remove from parchment paper and cool on a wire rack. Serve with any italian dish. I served mine with potato cheese soup and it was delicious! I have also decided these are better than croutons with a salad.
