Pumpkin Seed Cheese Crisps

Photo by: Joseph DeLeo

These crunchy little crisps are just a little spicy—and can be a lot more if you’d prefer them that way. They’ll keep several days stored in an airtight tin.

Yield: Makes about 24 crisps

INGREDIENTS
  • ½ cup hulled pumpkin seeds
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup grated Cheddar cheese
  • 1 rounded teaspoon chili powder, such as Gebhardt’s
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ rounded teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 large egg, beaten

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Have ready a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Grind the pumpkin seeds in the workbowl of a food processor until you have coarse crumbs. In a bowl, mix the ground seeds with the cheese and spices. Add the egg and mix well.

Drop tablespoons of the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet, flattening down the mounds with the back of the spoon. Bake 7 to 10 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and slide the crisps, still on the parchment paper, off the baking sheet to cool. After a few minutes, slide the crisps off the paper onto a baking rack to finish cooling.
