About this recipe: These taste like mini cheddar crackers! You can use whatever hard cheese you have in your fridge to make these savoury biscuits. That way, they'll taste different every time!

Yummy biscuits. I used half cheddar and half parmesan. I also added 1/2 teaspoon of English mustard. I needed to add more flour otherwise the dough is too sticky. I rolled the mixture into balls and pressed with the back of a fork to get a nice look. - 01 Feb 2016

Taste is excellent, I used Anchor Extra Mature cheddar, and added mustard powder. I did find the mixture a bit sticky but this was easily sorted with a but of extra flour. Daughter is already asking when we can make again (we've only just finished this batch) :-) - 29 Sep 2016
