Spicy Cheese Biscuit Recipe:

PREP: 15 mins
COOK: 45 mins

You need:

100g cold butter - cut into small cubes
100g strong cheddar - finely grated
1 egg (any size) - yolk only
175g plain flour
1 portion of SPICY CHEESE BISCUIT BLEND (1 portion = 1 ½ tbsp)

Method:

Rub the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs
Mix in the cheddar, SPICY CHEESE BISCUIT BLEND and ¼ tsp salt
Mix the egg yolk with 50ml water until fully combined
Mix the egg/water mixture into the flour mixture until the dough combines into a coherent ball (add a small splash more water if too dry or a bit more flour if too sticky)
Roll the dough into a large sausage with a diameter of 5-6cm then wrap in clingfilm or a bag and chill in the fridge for 20 minutes
PREHEAT THE OVEN TO 190°C/GAS MARK 5
Slice biscuit dough into slices about 5mm thick. Place on baking parchment lined baking trays then bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown and crisp

Very easy to make. Taste delicious, and still delicious the next day when warmed up. I can't say how long they would last - these were all eaten within 2 days. Next time I will try to roll the dough out and use cookie cutters, so that they are all the same size, for better presentation!

Cut them too thick so had to flatten a few, hence the varied shapes...BUT they disappeared almost as soon as they hit the plate. A wow with the guests. Fantastic

Have made these twice over Christmas and ordered more packets for me and my Mum, who is also a fan of them! They did not last long, are easy to make and absolutely delicious. I'm going to make sure I always have a pack of this spice mix in the cupboard!
