Savoury Cheese Biscuits

Graham

Recipe by  

Ideal for entertaining, you can load these savoury biscuits with cream cheese or use them as a snack source with a slice of tomato on top. Versatility and taste too!

Serve Savoury Cheese Biscuits either on their own or with Avocado and Cheese Dip, Tapenade or Walnut Dip. If served with dips, you can either allow your guests to dip them themselves, or you can pipe a little of the dip on the top of each biscuit, and top with a thin slice of stuffed olive, or sprinkle a tiny amount of chopped parsley over.

How to Cook Savoury Cheese Biscuits

  1. Sift the flour into a bowl then add the butter. Using your fingers rub the butter into the flour until it resembles breadcrumbs. Grate (shred) the cheese then stir it into the bowl. Separate the egg yolk from the egg white (you don't need the white) and add the egg yolk and cold water to the mix. Knead together to create a firm dough.
  2. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured board or other flat surface and roll it out to about ¼" (5mm) thickness. Using a plain-edged cookie cutter or upturned eggcup (or similar) cut the dough into rounds of about 1½" (3.5cm). Place these well apart on a lightly greased baking tray and bake in a preheated moderately hot oven (Mk 6 - 400ºF - 200ºC) for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on a wire rack.


Graham GRAHAM'S HOT TIP:
Any baking involving butter is usually easier if you cut the butter into small lumps before adding to the flour.
