Asiago Crisps with Pine Nuts

Print Friendly and PDF
These little gems are delicious, so easy to make and are a unique appetizer. They resemble thin, delicate crackers, but are just three ingredients: asiago cheese, pine nuts and fresh sage. I found the asiago cheese already shredded at Safeway (Von's). You are supposed to gently curl the crisps around a rolling pin while hot, but I left them flat as they were too hot to handle, and you would need to curl them quickly right from the oven. This recipe came from the Food Network Magazine.

Ingredients:
2 pkgs (6 oz) shredded asiago cheese
1 pkg fresh sage (whole leaves)
1/2 cup of pine nuts

Finely mince the fresh sage; set aside. Place a Silpat on a cookie sheet. Place a heaping tablespoon of asiago cheese in a small mound as you would if you were making cookies, approximately 1-2" apart. Sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon of pine nuts on top. Top with minced sage. Bake at 425 degrees for 8-10 min until golden brown around the edges. Remove from the pan and cool on a wire rack.
