Savoury Cheese Biscuits

My absolute favourite go-to snack has definitely got to be savoury cheese biscuits/crackers. I've never found one I didn't love and these are no exception. Flaky, buttery pastry combined with sharp, tangy cheese. Perfect. Wrap them in baking paper and store in an airtight container. They make a great gift and an even better party snack.

Watch the video below to see how to make them yourself.


175g plain flour
100g butter, diced
40g mature cheddar
25g grated parmesan
25g poppy seeds
25g sesame seeds
1 large egg, separated

Preheat oven 190c/Gas 5.
Line baking tray with baking paper.
Sift flour, add diced butter and combine using a palette knife.
Add the parmesan, cheddar, sesame and poppy seeds.
Add the egg yolk along with 4 tsp of cold water.
Form to a stiff dough.
Roll out on a floured surface and cut into preferred shape.
Place on tray and brush with egg white.
Bake for 15 minutes.
Transfer to a wire rack and cool.
