Parmesan Cookies

One of the things I think is truly “dangerous” for me is savory cookies. It’s like having a bag of mini pretzel bites in front of me – they’ll simply disappear.

These parmesan cookies are so addictive, I actually recommend you NOT to make them ha ha 🙂 They are delicious, crispy and perfect as a snack on game day or whenever you’re hosting a small party. It’s a great treat to have with cold bear or ginger ale.
