These little Cheese Biscuits are so crunchy and delicious. The recipe calls for cornflakes which give them a unique South African flavour.
3/4 cup grated cheddar (use a mature cheddar)
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 cup self raising flour
1 cup crushed corn flakes
1 egg lightly beaten
Heat your oven to 180 Celsius and lightly butter a baking tray.
To a bowl add the butter, grated cheddar and cayenne pepper. Beat with a electric beater until smooth.
Sift in the flour, add the crushed corn flakes and the egg and stir until evenly distributed. Don’t use the mixer.
Use a teaspoon to roll small balls and place them about 4cm apart on the baking tray. Give each one a light press with a fork and a brush with a little milk.
Bake for 15 minutes until light brown.
Cool on a rack and dig in. They will be crunchy and delightfully cheesy. You could also add a pinch of curry powder if you like that sort of flavour.
