I love making my own crackers, but I’m no all about rolling dough and cutting them into the perfect little shapes. That’s why Parmesan Herb Wonton Crisps are my favorite way to make “homemade” crackers. They are so easy to make and so delicious to eat! My Cheddar Shortbread Cracker recipe is another one of my favorite homemade crackers.
I came up with this recipe because I was having company and I realized at the last minute that I ddin’t have any crackers and I didn’t have time to run to the market. So I whipped open the refrigerator and saw a package of wonton wrappers and some fresh thyme. I alsways have parmesan cheese so it suddenly became a no-brainer…I’ll just make my own crackers. And I am so glad I did! They loved them, I loved them and now they are a staple when I’m enteraining with family and friends.
Storing Parmesan herb Crisps
These crackers store very well. Just put them in a zip-top bag or in an airtight container and they will last for a week. I haven’t tried freezing them yet so I can’t really recommend it at this time.
What else can you make with wonton wrappers?
Wonton wrappers are really versitle and you can make all types of different things.
- Make this recipe sweet – substitue the cheese and herbs for cinnamon sugar and serve them instead of toast or use them to dip into fruit dip or chocolate sauce.
- You can fill them with crabmeat and cream cheese and make your own crab rangoon.
- Press them into a muffin tin and fill them with taco meat and cheese for little taco cups. Or fil them with sausage, pasta sauce, and cheese for yummy pizza cups.

- I am obsessed with non-stick parchment paper baking sheets. They are pre-cut and fit perfectly on my cookies sheets. They make clean up super simple and the food does not stick at all.
