Cheesy Biscuits

or cookies, if you're that way inclined. alliterates better too, i suppose.

(any american types out there, *what* are what you call biscuits?!?!)

1Cup Flour
1Tbsp Icing Sugar
1tsp Baking Powder
1/8tsp Salt
pinch Cayenne Pepper
2Tbsp Butter, softened
75g Grated Cheese
some milk

Sift the flour & other dry ingredients together.
Rub in butter & add cheese.
Mix to a stiff dough with a little milk.
Knead and roll out very thin on a floured board (ours were approx 3-5mm), cut into fingers, squares or shapes
Bake for around 10min at 200°C
and munch!

we had ours dipped in tomato & BBQ sauce ;-)

I'm one of those "American types" and I think this does qualify as a biscuit. Cookies are sweet, biscuits are savory.

ahh thanks for that! because here biscuits are sweet, so things like "biscuits & gravy" sounds like crazy talk ;) however, along with starbucks & subway, cookies are proliferating here! and mysteriously i think most people have always used *cookie* cutters, not biscuit cutters lol..

I was under the impression that 'biscuits' were like scones... or maybe dumplings.
From the recipes I've seen, anyway.
