The first time I ran across parmesan wafers I was in a steak house with my dad. He had ordered a salad and immediately began raving about these strange flat cookie looking things. After a few minutes of him raving I decided to try one. It turns out he was right. They were parmesan wafers, we ended up ordering these tangy, crunchy wafers as an appetizer and continued to enjoy this new found treat.
Later after trying to re-create the recipe at home I finally called my dad. I had come up with the combination that made those tasty parmesan wafers such a treat. We now serve these parmesan wafers with salads, soups and on occasion as a simple appetizer.
Now when my dad comes to visit I still make this special treat that we discoverd together.
1 Cup grated parmesan cheese, grate with the largest holes on the grater
1 Tbs all-purpose flour
¼ tsp ground pepper
Stir together all three ingredients. Spoon tablespoon amounts of mixture onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Place each spoon full about 4 inches apart. Flatten each mound with the back of a greased spatula.
Bake at 375° in the middle of the oven for about 10 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly then transfer to plates.
