when they are hot or warm, they are crisp. but when they get cooled completely, the crispness is not there and they taste a bit more soft and better. these cheese biscuits stay good in a cold climate at room temperature for about 2 to 3 days. otherwise keep in the fridge. makes about 28 to 30 small cheese biscuits.
