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.

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.
