Parmesan and Herb Crisps

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Makes: 16 crisps


  1. 1 cup (250 mL) freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano (approx. 4 oz/125 g)
  2. 1 clove garlic, minced
  3. 1 tbsp (15 mL) finely chopped fresh parsley
  4. 1 tbsp (15 mL) finely chopped fresh chives
  5. 1/2 tsp (2 mL) finely grated lemon zest
  6. 1/4 tsp (1 mL) pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Toss cheese with garlic, parsley, chives, lemon zest and pepper until combined. Mound generous tablespoonfuls of mixture onto parchment paper-lined baking sheets at least 2 in. (5 cm) apart. Tamp down gently with back of spoon to flatten slightly.
  2. Bake 7 to 10 min., or until golden brown and crisp. Cool completely. Store in airtight container, between wax paper or parchment paper, up to two days.
Grate fresh cheese with coarse side of box grater for best results.
