  • 4 ounces Parmigiano-Reggiano, freshly grated
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh sage or thyme (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

  2. In a medium bowl, toss cheese with cayenne and herbs. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a nonstick baking mat. Spoon heaping tablespoons cheese mixture onto baking sheet, spacing about 2 inches apart. Lightly press to flatten into 2-inch circles, using a round cutter as a guide, if desired.

  3. Transfer to oven and bake until slightly browned, 6 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool on baking sheet to firm slightly. Carefully loosen using a spatula and let cool until firm and completely hardened. Repeat process with any remaining cheese. Cooled crisps can be stored in an airtight container between layers of wax paper.
