Description

Whether you make these Cheese Biscuits with or without chilli, they are a fantastic snack with drinks or for a box-set binge.  The dough can be kept in the fridge or freezer and baked whenever you feel like fresh home-made biscuits.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 100 g butter (at room temperature)
  • 100 g strong cheese (eg Cheddar)
  • 100 g plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon chilli flakes

 


Instructions

  1. Put all the ingredients into a food processor and blend until combined to form a dough.
  2. Roll the dough into a sausage shape, wrap in cling film and place in the fridge to chill for an hour.
  3. Set your oven to 180 degrees C or Gas Mark 4.
  4. Remove the dough from the fridge and cut across to form disks approximately 1 cm thick.
  5. Place the disks on a greased baking tray and bake in the oven for 10 minutes until golden.
  6. Remove from the oven and place the biscuits on a baking rack to cool.

Notes

  • If you don’t like chilli, you can leave it out.  The plain, cheese biscuits are delicious too! 
  • The baked biscuits will keep for several days in an air-tight tin.
  • The dough can be kept in the fridge for a week.  So that you can cut it into discs and bake for home-made biscuits within minutes.
  • The dough can also be frozen for several months.
