Cheese Biscuits

Cheese Biscuits

You know, I’m not entirely sure what it is, but I’m getting a funny sort of feeling about this Lent…It goes along these lines, this feeling: I’m not allowed anything sweet so I must substitute the sugary stuff I normally eat. I shall substitute this sugar with…wait for it…CHEESE! I may have to branch my experimentation out further to fully embrace a sugar-free existence.
I’m not saying, by the way, that cheese is bad. Of course not. I love cheese, especially a good, strong cheddar (I particularly like the Snowdonia Cheeses…). I’m just saying that I might be limiting myself by not trying other ingredients for cakes and biscuits…
Having said all this, for my first foray into savoury biscuits, I’m starting with this nice simple cheese biscuit recipe. Mostly because it involves a whole three ingredients: butter, flour, and cheese. The actual recipe I found called for Parmesan, but meh. I have a nice cheddar in the fridge that’ll do.
So you will need: 150g of plain flour; 120g of butter; 130g of grated cheese.
Basically, rub it into a good dough, leave to chill for at least an hour, roll out and cut shapes, then bake at 180C for 15 minutes or so, et voila! Cheese biscuits. I suppose you should let them cool before consuming, washed down with a nice cuppa…
And yup, these are Hallowe’en shapes…It was that or stars…These are way more cool…
