[Recipe] Imperial Cheese Cookies

The Frilly Apron


  • 1 cup butter
  • 8 oz. pkg. McLarens Imperial cheese
  • dash of salt
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper or tabasco
  • 1/4 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 4 cups crispy rice cereal


  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Cream butter and cheese together.
  • Add seasonings.
  • Beat in flour.
  • Add Rice Krispies. Mix well.
  • Shape into balls.
  • Press down with a fork which has been dipped in cold water.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes, until lightly browned. I baked mine for no more than 12 minutes.


To make these cookies gluten free, use white rice or brown rice flour in place of regular flour. I substituted Gluten Free Brown Rice Krispies cereal as well. If you use rice flour reduce the baking time to about 14 minutes per batch. You could also add 1/8 tsp xanthan gum, although it isn't required.
