Parmesan Crisps

These crisps make a wonderful addition to a crudité platter.  Easy and delicious and carb free! 

3/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

1/2 tsp. ground black pepper (optional)

Preheat oven to 400F.  Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat.  Parchment paper can be used, but I highly recommend the baking mat.  Mound the cheese by tablespoons, approx. 2 inches apart.  Spread the mounds slightly into small circles.  Bake until cheese is golden and crisp – approx. 10 minutes.

Sprinkle with the pepper.  Let cool and remove with a thin spatula to a plate to cool completely.

TIP:  This recipe is open to a little creative license, such as mixing some fresh thyme into the cheese before baking, or finely chopped rosemary.
