“This recipe came from my husband's grandmother. He remembers that she would cook them for him and his brother every time they went to visit them out on their ranch in the Texas Hill Country. Every Christmas, my brother-in-law makes several dozen of these babies and you can catch a group of family members crowded around the tin can he puts them in, happily munching away.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix cheese & margarine together. Add flour, cayenne, and salt.
  2. Add corn flakes. Don't stir the corn flakes very much, as this will keep the crispness.
  3. Bake @ 350 for 15-20 minute I make mine about the size of a silver dollar and be sure to bake until done. The trick is to let them sit on wire cooling racks until they are totally cooled.
  4. Then store in an airtight container with wax paper between layers.
