1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1 medium jalapeno, sliced real thin
Preheat oven to 350º.
Place a sheet of parchment paper on a metal cookie sheet.
DO NOT use a silicone/silpat sheet, waxed paper or foil (unless it’s the special non-stick foil) to bake these or they will not cook properly.
Using a tablespoon, scoop up 1 T. of cheese and make a small pile on the parchment. Press it slightly flat. Repeat 15 more times.
Place a slice of jalapeno on top of each pile.
Pop into 350º oven for about 10-12 minutes. I would recommend browning them a wee bit more than shown in the photo for a firmer snack to serve at parties. These are somewhat pliable if under browned.
Allow them to completely cool and fully firm up before removing from the pan for best results.
