Diet trends come and go, but cheese is here to stay! According to the USDA, Americans are predicted to consume at least 5% more cheese in 2016. If you are like me and love cooking with cheese, then you will love the following recipes. They are perfectly light for hot summer days!

Aged White Cheddar Crisp

It’s gluten-free, and a perfect light snacking option!

Easy, Light Summer Recipes 1


4 TBS of shredded Gold Creek Farms Aged White Cheddar

If you want more flavor, try our Bacon Chive Cheddar or Truffle Cheddar as a substitute for our original Aged White Cheddar. They are all delicious!


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Drop a tablespoon of shredded cheddar into four separate piles. Make sure they have at least 2 inches of space in between, as they are about to melt and spread-out! Bake for about 10-15 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool for 10-15 minutes. Remove from cookie sheet with a knife. Yum!
