Heading into party season, I’m always on the look out for something new to put on my buffet table. These Cheese Biscuits are insanely delicious and perfect for the job! Crammed full of cheese with hints of garlic & onion, there’s no shortage of flavour here. Ideal on their own, with cheeses and/or cold cuts, you may want to make a double batch as these will disappear quickly!
Here is what you will need to make approx 16 – 20 (easily doubled.)
Place the flour, salt, garlic, onion & cubed butter into a food processor. Pulse until it looks like fine breadcrumbs.
Add the cheddar & parmesan cheese and pulse again until it looks a little like this…
Add the egg yolk & the water and pulse until it just comes together to form a dough.
Roll the dough out between two sheets of cling film or baking paper to a thickness of approx 6mm (1/4″.)
Cut out as many circles as you can using the 5.5cm cutter and place, spaced slightly apart, on a baking sheet lined with baking paper or a silicone baking mat. Reroll any leftovers & cut out more circles. Repeat until all the dough is used up.
Place the biscuits into the freezer for 15 minutes whilst you preheat the oven to 180°C/Fan 170°C.
Bake the biscuits in the preheated oven for approx 15 minutes until a lovely deep golden colour. Turn the tray round once halfway through the cooking time to ensure an even bake.
Leave on the tray for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
I have always been a sucker for a good cheese board over the Christmas holidays. Last year I was pregnant so sadly had to miss out on a lot of the cheeses I love. Totally worth it obviously! But still incredibly hard saying no haha! I will be more than happy to add these to my cheese board this year, I honestly think everyone will go nuts for them, as will you! You need to give them a try, you can thank me later!
I hope you enjoyed the post my lovelies, until next time.
