I love this snack for those times where I want something cracker-like, but quick. No time for some complex cracker replacement. Easy fix...baked cheese! That's it, just bake some shredded cheese for 5 minutes and you get these awesome cheese crisps. You can pretty much use any kind of melting cheese you have on hand, my favorite is the light 3 cheese blend from Trader Joe's (jack, mozzarella and cheddar). I do find that light cheese works best, I've used full fat cheese and find that the crisps are way too greasy. Another thing you can play with for this recipe is sprinkling some garlic powder or Italian seasoning on top before baking.
You can pretty much use any kind of spread you like on top of the crisps, or you can just eat them plain too! I like throwing together a pesto cottage cheese to go along with it. The basic recipe I use is 1 tablespoon of pesto for every cup of cottage cheese, but you can modify that for more/ less pesto flavor.

The crisps keep pretty well for a couple of days, though they may start to get chewy and not quite so crisp anymore. Refrigerating makes this happen more quickly. Give these a shot the next time you need a quick snack and let me know what you think. Enjoy!
