These were easy to make (really easy) and tasted good! I wouldn’t cut them into 20 pieces, like the recipe says, unless you want crackers the size of Cheez-Its. The crispy edges had a great flavor, so I think if we partially cooked these (until they were set enough to cut), then spread them out on a parchment-lined baking sheet to finish cooking, they would be even better!

  • 4 Tablespoons Parmesan cheese, finely grated
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds, crushed in a blender
  • 1 Tablespoon heavy cream
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
  2. Beat all ingredients until well blended.
  3. Line a 10×10 in baking pan with parchment paper (you might be able to just do this on a baking sheet … I haven’t tried that yet). Pour in the batter and spread as thin and evenly as possible.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes or until light brown. Cool and slice into 20 1-inch squares (I would cut them bigger). OR you could try my suggestion up there and cook for about 20 minutes, cut, then spread them out on a baking sheet to finish baking.
