  2. Just to let you know I have every one of the cookbooks, including A year of the best, slow cooker and Bravo. They are so well used that the first one(red one) is falling apart and the pages are well marked with cocoa and flour etc! Love being able to go online for recipes rather than trying to remember which book the recipe is in. Best of Bridge is my standy in all my cooking over the years, and the years are adding up since I received my first cook book!

  3. These are delicious but they flattened out and were way too crumbly. How do I correct this so that they stay chunky and firm? Can you half the recipe?

    • They are a very flat, tender cookie – almost shortbread-like! You could absolutely halve the recipe – and try chilling the dough before baking? it could be too that your oven is a bit on the cool side, and the dough is melting before it sets. An inexpensive oven thermometer will help you gauge whether it’s accurate! (Many aren’t!) ^JVR

  4. I love these cookies. The last time I made them they didn’t seem as good. This time I noticed though that the cheese is now in 230 gram containers rather than 250 grams, the sneaky way to sell you less for more. Not quite as cheesy but still awesome.

  5. My friend just made these and I loved them and she directed me to come to your site for the recipe. She serves them with red pepper jelly.

  6. Just a comment on the Cocktail Crisp recipe. The original recipe lists the Imperial Cheese package as 80z, 250g. The original cheese package were 250g but that is not 8oz.
    8oz by weight is 226.796 grams.
    The current packages of Maclarens Imperial Cheese are 230 grams.
    When MacLarens correctly changed their package weight to 230 grams, many people thought they had to adjust the Cocktail Crips recipe to allow for that, which they do not as the original recipe does call for 80z and that is close to 230grams.

    • Hi Elisabeth, thanks for connecting with us. We have not tested this recipe using GF ingredients, however, from our experience in using GF flour and GF rice crispy cereal in our homes, we believe you will get very successful results. Happy munching.

    • I have made these with GF flour and GF Rice Krispies and they are still delicious! A little “shorter” than the original, but well worth making if you want a GF snack!

      • Hi Jeanette, fantastic!!! Thanks for sharing the ingredient swap out and that you had tasty GF results with our Cocktail Crisps recipe. Good to know 🙂

    • Hi Marion, yes, you can definitely use the food processor to combine the first 5 ingredients. Glad you picked up on maintaining the texture by stirring in the cereal by hand. These are so tasty. Enjoy!

  7. Just made them for the first time in about 15 years! They are still delicious! Coming with me to a cocktail party tomorrow (providing there are any left!). Think I will make them again and freeze the dough so it is quickly available for company! 👍🏻😀

  8. I have made these for years. I was looking for a more consistent shape for presentation. I rolled the batch into two logs. I wrapped them in swran and refrigerated overnight. Upto weeks. I sliced with a serrated knife. I now get consistent sized crackers which I package for friends and family. I like to makr these in October so they can age. the longer the better.
