BLUE CHEESE COCKTAIL CRACKERS

Can be made one day ahead.  A real treat served with Coeur d'Alene Cellars' No. 6 White.  (Substitute cheddar for blue cheese and add 1 teaspoon cumin, or try feta and 1 tablespoon fresh thyme and chives.)

1/2 cup cream cheese, at room temperature
1 cup butter, at room temperature
1/4 teaspoon cayenne, or less
1 1/2 cups crumbled blue cheese

2 cups all purpose flour
2 cups Rice Crispies
2 sices bacon, cooked and crumbled

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  With a mixer on medium speed, cream together cream cheese and butter until light and fluffy.  Add cayenne, blue cheese, flour, rice cereal and bacon and beat on medium-low speed until well blended.  The dough will be stiff.  Roll 1-tablespoon portions into balls and place slightly apart on baking sheets.  Flatten each ball with a fork.  Bake until crackers are golden brown, about 15 minutes.
