Made these last night! I used 1/2 cup parmesan and 1/2 cup finely shredded cheddar. They didn't rise as much as yours did but they're delicious! They turned out like a savory shortbread.

Wow! I am very happy that you liked them.

Maybe you rolled out a bit too thin....that makes them cracky and crispy but do not rise much...Anyway as long as it tasted good....

I saw this today and immediately decided to make them as soon as I got home.

I made mine a little thinner, and in between batches I discovered a star shaped cookie cutter :)

They're so delicious!
