  • 115g plain flour
  • 55g grated strong cheese (cheddar is best)
  • 55g unsalted butter
  • 1 egg yolk
  • A pinch of salt
  • A pinch of freshly ground black pepper
  • A pinch of paprika (for those that like a little spice)


    1. Preheat oven to 180C.
    2. Blend the flour, cheese and butter in a food processor until it looks like fine crumbs.
    3. Add salt and pepper to taste, add paprika for an additional kick!
    4. Add the egg yolk to the food processor and mix until it forms a soft ball. You may need to add a little water to encourage the ball to form.
    5. Roll the mix on a lightly floured board to a thickness of 8mm and cut the biscuits.
    6. Place the biscuits on a non-stick tray and bake in the oven for 10 minutes, or until golden brown.

Gorgeous! Taste like 'Cheddars'. I added half a teaspoon of English mustard.

Brilliant and simple. Might roll the biscuits a bit thinner next time. I threw in some fresh thyme too- yum!
