    Spicy and buttery tidbits perfect for any dinner party. These little appetizers get a little heat from the cayenne and jalapeno cheese. A perfect match for a glass of wine.

      Absolutely delicious. I made the dough ahead of time, rolled it on waxed paper, rolled the dough & paper up together and froze it (wrapped in plastic). When I thawed it out on party day, the cracker dough was so easy to cut & bake off fresh. A real plus to my menu. Thanks!
      BTW - unless you live alone and have a delicate appetite, double this recipe!

      Wonderful crackers! I added some cheddar for more cheesiness, and double the recipe. I'm glad I did. These will not last long.

      I made these crackers this morning and they are very good. Think they will be good with pepper jack cheese or plain as well.
