WHAT IS REQUIRED

Recipe adapted from: Cheddar Cheese Cuties

Cheesy Biscuit Bites (芝士小饼干)

  • 120 grams of plain flour or whole wheat flour
  • 60 grams of butter, cold
  • Pinches of salt
  • 1 tablespoon of cold water

  • In a food processor, place flour and butter and blend until it forms some crumbs. Add in the cheddar cheese and blend until well combined . Gradually add in cold water, blend again until it form a pliable dough.  If it is overly sticky, add in flour tablespoon by tablespoon. If you do not have a food processor, you can mix all the ingredients manually. .

  • As the dough can be rather sticky, if you can’t handle the soft dough chill the dough for about 15-30 minutes until it is firmer. Put the dough in between 2 pieces of baking paper, using a rolling pin to roll the dough flat with about 3 mm thickness. Use a cutter of your choice and cut the dough.

  • Transfer the cut dough into a baking tray and bake in the pre-heated oven of 160 degree Celsius for 10-12 minutes or until it turns light golden brown. The browning will continues in the baking tray after taking out from the oven.  Note that timing is for your reference and it very much depends on the size of the your cutter. The larger the cut dough, the longer it will need to be baked. In general, the thinner the dough, the more crispy it will be.

  • Once taken out from the oven, let it rest in the baking tray for 10 minutes, cooled completely before store in an air tight container.
