I doubt that cream cheese would ever get crisp, Paulomi . . . all I've ever used for crisps are hard cheeses like cheddar, colby, jack, provolone, etc., slices or shredded.

If you do try cream cheese, let us know if it worked.

I am making these currently using Grana Padano cheese which is one of my favourite hard cheeses.

@Paulomi - cream cheese will definitely not work.

Hmmm, my gut response is no. I've heated cream cheese just briefly in the micro and it curdled. But try just one, (like a Tablespoonful or a Teaspoon so you don't waste much if it doesn't work) to see for sure. If it works let us know!!

LOL, if I'd kept reading after the question I'd have seen the question was well answered already!!

Before i could read ur responses, i tried cream cheese. I mixed it with flax seed powder and dried basil and dried oregano. I microwaved it for 4 minutes and it was still very soft. After 2 more minutes, i gave up as they were still soft (though not as before) but when they cooled down they turned crisp. I enjoy eating them. I tried something else- kneaded a dough with flax seed powder and cream cheese and rolled ot out with my hand (like a roti). Added some dried basil, dried oregano and sesame seeds on top and microwaved for 5 minutes, then cut it into pieces and filled my snack box with it. Its not supremely tasty but i like dipping it into a herb sauce or sth and snacking on it.

On a seperate note, how does hummus work for you? We get a freshly made cup of hummus in the nature fresh store here and it looked really appetizing.

Interesting! I'll have to give your mixture a try! The flax seed powder probably held the cream cheese together.

That's usually made with chickpeas (garbanzo beans), which are pretty packed with carbs. I can't eat hummus without going high. My husband, who is not diabetic but is eating LC to lose weight and for better health, eats it but makes sure he watches his portion control. Most around here are 3 grams to 5 grams or so, of carbs, per 2 tablespoon serving. When he eats it, he measures it so that he's sure to watch portion control on it, due to the carb content. You'd have to check the brands you have there, and then test afterwards.

Smile Cheese Crisps

I know this is an old thread, but I had to try this and tell somebody.
So I saw this thread and while shopping yesterday, for laughs and giggles bought some mozzarella sticks, broke them in halves and put them on some Non-Stick Aluminum foil, placed in the oven @ 350 for 16 minutes and slid them out.

My daughter had just come home from work and saw me with them and had to try them, delicious. She immediately crisped some more. Oh, boy, so much for that bag of cheese sticks. Dipped them in marinara sauce and the rest is history.
