Shape is for your reference, you can get use any cookies cutter you like, star, leaves or just use a pizza cutter to cut into regular bite sizes… How about get hold of a goldfish cutter and make it into the famous goldfish cheesy snacks?

WHAT IS REQUIRED

Recipe adapted from: Cheddar Cheese Cuties

IMG_4232

STEPS OF PREPARATION

  • Pre-heat the oven to 160 degree Celsius

  • In a food processor, place flour and butter and blend until it forms some crumbs. Add in the cheddar cheese and blend until well combined . Gradually add in cold water, blend again until it form a pliable dough.  If it is overly sticky, add in flour tablespoon by tablespoon. If you do not have a food processor, you can mix all the ingredients manually. .

  • As the dough can be rather sticky, if you can’t handle the soft dough chill the dough for about 15-30 minutes until it is firmer. Put the dough in between 2 pieces of baking paper, using a rolling pin to roll the dough flat with about 3 mm thickness. Use a cutter of your choice and cut the dough.

  • Transfer the cut dough into a baking tray and bake in the pre-heated oven of 160 degree Celsius for 10-12 minutes or until it turns light golden brown. The browning will continues in the baking tray after taking out from the oven.  Note that timing is for your reference and it very much depends on the size of the your cutter. The larger the cut dough, the longer it will need to be baked. In general, the thinner the dough, the more crispy it will be.

  • Once taken out from the oven, let it rest in the baking tray for 10 minutes, cooled completely before store in an air tight container.

  1. Hi,

    I am a bit confused. There’s no sugar in your listing of ingredients, however, you mentioned about adding in sugar in the 2nd preparation step?

    And can I use a mixer instead of food processor?

    Thanks. Can’t wait to try making this. ☺
