Here's some made of smoked cheddar and jack cheese. Then topped with some pepper and thyme. Baked on parchment paper at 380 for 8-10 minutes.

Yes they do look lovely .
I do something similar here using Parmesan cheese - though they are usually smaller. It can add a fun twist to place a small ice lolly stick into the cheese before they are baked and then they can be eaten like lollipops.
Yes, as I noted in my original post "Baked on parchment paper at 380 for 8-10 minutes. Whatever you do, do NOT apply any salt for the cheese already has that covered. You can also experiment with different spices such as tarragon, oregano, rosemary, etc. Just don't over do it. Also, when you pull it out of the oven, you might need to gently pat off some of the oil that oozed out of the cheese. As soon as they cool down, I will put them in a ziplok bag.
Back when the kids were young we used to do this but when the cheese disks were made the kids wold put a little pizza sauce on them then topping of choice then back in oven under the broiler or a min or two. Kids loved them.
I need to try this again with smoked cheese.
