    I had fun making these, and they tasted great too. I sprinkled with salt on top just before baking.  -  11 Jun 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Nice, home made cheez-its. I added a tablespoon of fresh chopped rosemary. The house smells great. A bit on the oily side.  -  05 Feb 2019  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Thank you for this recipe. I used half whole wheat flour and half all purpose flour. I only had white cheddar so I added a sprinkle of turmeric to give a yellow colour. I also added 1/4 teaspoon of onion powder. These turned out crispy and delicious with a lots of cheese flavour. I made them with my four year old and she loved using the cookie cutter to cut them out. Our whole family loves the result, I predict that we will be making these regularly.  -  05 Feb 2019  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
