Every end of term inside my daughters’ kindergarten, finds us baking cheese biscuits because of their festival. These are delicious, very easy to make, light flaky mouthfuls of crunch.
Recipe Cheese Biscuits
Similar to cheese straws only more pleasant. That you can use any shaped blameless, you like. We have pigs, bunnies, stars, moons, hearts, fish. They are the perfect solution to the dilemma of providing a goody snack for school feasts and festivals. That doesn’t break the teacher’s guidelines of minimizing sugar but is fun for your kids.
They are also a vital item at children’s parties for the kids. The last birthday had me frantically rolling and eliminating these cheese biscuits, between trying to get yourself a roast lunch shared before the afternoon party.
The original plan had been for the children to do all the work, to ensure they are entertained and gainfully doing work in the lull prior to the party. However, the birthday girl was too busy using her new toys plus the others too busy bemoaning the very fact it was such a long time before their birthdays, to ensure that I got using the job at the last minute!
Recipe Cheese Biscuits Ingredients
Today though I had 5-year-olds accountable for the cheese biscuits, kneading then rolling out and reducing with animal shaped cookie cutters.
This still required an affordable amount of timely intervention, to discover the dough to hold on to together before frustration occurs and make sure my youngest got to be able to cut out some shapes without destroying her older sister’s carefully ordered scheme of things.
I also was required to get a batch of bread done since they were cooking, when we had finished up the very last slice at lunch, but that burned up the rest of my energy reserves so I chose baked potatoes to be a minimal effort supper.
The oven was on anyway to the biscuits and bread so it absolutely was all in aid of your energy conservation…mine along with the worlds in equal measure.
Here would be the recipe to the cheese biscuits:
100g/4oz finely grated cheese
50g/2oz self-raising flour
25g/1oz soft butter
pinch of cayenne pepper
For the cheese, you can use a mature cheddar or 80g mild cheddar with 20g mozzarella. Put everything in a bowl and rub in, squidge and knead for around 5 minutes until referring together right into a soft dough.
It will do, equally, you are about to lose the heart of it accomplishing this unaided. Roll out the dough on the lightly floured surface to about 2.5mm/ 1/8″ thick and cut into whatever fancy shapes you’ve got cutters for.
Bake at 200C/400F for 10-12 minutes until golden. Cool on a rack. This amount disappears in a short time, and before you’ve turned your back on them sometimes, they’re very light and moreish, so I usually make exponentially increase quantities with the festivals.
The cheese biscuits head on down very well with adults too. At the final birthday party, one father polished off an entire plateful, instead of the sample the birthday cake. They would come up with a great accompaniment to drinks before dinner.
You could cut them into long strips and present one twist and have into cheese straws, then sprinkle all of them extra parmesan or get a more sophisticated shape as a blameless, – the star shapes would be good. Mind you most laid-back adults would be equally as happy because the kids for being eating pigs and bunnies!
