My husband and I love fondue and our favorite part is at the end when we get to the la religieuse (French for the nun). It’s the layer of toasted crisped cheese at the bottom of the fondue pot that has the consistency of a cracker. There is always something especially irresistible about crispy baked cheese.
These Parmesan Crisps are reminiscent of an airier version of la religieuse or a savory florentine cookie. They are crisp, light, cheesy, a little nutty and salty. They are perfect as a snack, a garnish on soup or a salad or as a cocktail bite when entertaining.
