Ingredients
  1. 125g plain or spelt flour
  2. 125g butter, softened
  3. 125g grated mature cheddar cheese.
  4. Pinch mustard powder or 1/2 tsp English mustard
  5. Pinch paprika
  6. Pinch ground black pepper
Optional extras – choose your favourite
  1. 1tsp dried rosemary
  2. 1tsp yellow mustard seeds to replace mustard
  3. 1tbsp grated Parmesan cheese to sprinkle before baking
Instructions
  1. Beat together the cheese, butter and flour in a bowl with a wooden spoon, or blend in a food processor for 3-4 minutes, or until it forms a dough.
  2. Shape and roll the mixture into a sausage shape roughly 4- 5cm in diameter. Wrap in a square of aluminium foil, baking parchment or clingfilm. Chill in the fridge or freezer for about 1 hour, or until firm.
  3. Preheat the oven to 190°C, gas mark 5. Line several baking sheets with non-stick baking parchment. Slice very thin discs about 5mm thick, from the chilled (or defrosted if frozen ) dough, and arrange on the baking sheets.
  4. Dust with a touch of cayenne or sprinkle with cumin or poppy seeds, then bake for 6-8 minutes, until pale golden and slightly puffed. Cool on a wire rack.
Notes
  1. Tip: You can ring the changes with different hard cheeses. Smoked cheddar gives a lovely flavour and Double Gloucester a deeper coloured biscuit.
