    Makes: 40 cheese biscuits

    • 220g self raising flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1 pinch chilli powder
    • salt and pepper, to taste
    • 115g butter
    • 6 tablespoons grated cheese
    • 150ml milk

    Prep:25min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:45min 

    1. Preheat the oven to 220 C / Gas 7. Line a baking tray with baking parchment then lightly dust with flour.
    2. In a bowl mix together the flour, baking powder, chilli powder, salt and pepper. Rub in the butter with your fingers until it reaches the consistency of breadcrumbs. Mix in the cheese.
    3. Gradually add in the milk and mix until a dough is formed. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and roll out to about 0.5 to 1cm thick, then cut into biscuits with cookie cutter (or as I used, a small half pint glass).
    4. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes until dark golden brown and hard. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on a cooling rack. Transfer to a serving plate and serve.


    You can use any sort of cheese for this recipe, however I chose Co-op spicy Cheddar (with sweet chilli and jalapeno peppers).

    For a beginner. No mention of how you make the dipping sauce. A disappointment. - 20 Mar 2015
