Cheese Biscuits


This is a recipe I originally found in the Sainsbury's Magazine about 7 or 8 years ago and have slowly adapted over time to suit whatever cheese I had in the fridge. They're a family favourite but I only ever seem to make them around Christmas! 

You can use whatever kind of cheese you want! The original recipe calls for 25g grated Parmesan and 100g Stilton. I personally cannot STAND blue cheese so I tend to switch it out for cheddar. For the batch pictured above, I used a blue cheddar for a bit of a compromise. But if you like a mild cheesy flavour, just use a cheddar. Entirely up to you!   

125g plain flour 
pinch of Cayenne Pepper 
1 tsp light brown sugar 
100g butter, cubed 
125g cheese, grated 
sesame seeds 

1. Put the flour, cayenne pepper and sugar with a pinch of salt in a food processor and blitz. Add butter and blitz until it's all mixed in. 
2. Add the cheese and whizz again. Tip onto a floured surface and roll into a log shape. 
3. Roll the dough in the sesame seeds. Wrap in clingfilm and chill for 2 hours. 
4. Preheat oven to 170. Slice 1cm biscuits and bake for 15 minutes. Leave to cool and enjoy!
