Kids in the Kitchen – Cheddar Biscuits

Welcome to this weeks Kids in the Kitchen, it’s a new month so that means a new linky.
A big thank you to everyone who joined in last month we had lots of lovely recipes to read. I’ve pinned them all on my Pinterest Board so they can be seen at any time.

Follow Anne’s board Kids In The Kitchen on Pinterest.

A big thanks to Mummy Zen who gave us a fabulous recipe for Cheesy Carrot Flapjacks, I’m tempted to make these for myself.
Thanks to D from the Beesley Buzz for showing us how Macarons should be made.

I can’t wait to see what your kids have been up to this month, so let the fun begin. You can join in the linky at any time during the next month and as many times as you wish.

Cheddar Biscuits

My kids love Cheesy biscuits so I thought it would be good to have a go at making our own. This weeks helper was Boo.


200g plain flour
1/2 tsp rock salt
150g Cheddar cheese, grated
150 g unsalted butter, chilled and diced
1 whole egg and 1 egg yolk.


Boo grated the Cheddar cheese 
We made the mixture in the food processor because it is dense and difficult to handle
Boo put the flour, salt and cheese into food processor and pressed pulse a few times just to combine them a little.
Then she added the diced butter and ran the processor until the mixture looked like coarse bread crumbs.
Finally she added the egg and yolk and switched on the processor again until all the ingredients came together.
We took the mixture out of the processor and put it on a floured work surface.
We worked the mixture into a firm dough and rolled it into a long sausage shape.
We cut this into two and wrapped it in greaseproof paper before putting it in the fridge for half and hour.
We preheated the oven to 200C, gas 6 and greased and lined two baking trays with paper.
We took the dough out of the fridge and cut it into slices about 1cm thick. We placed these slightly apart on the baking trays.
We baked them for 10 -12 minutes until golden.
Boo loves grating the cheese

So now it’s over to you, get in the kitchen with your kids and come and share what you’ve cooked,

I’d also be mighty grateful if you included my badge in your post so others can see it and come along and join in. (although adding the badge is not compulsory to joining in)

    I love cheese biscuits too. Well done Boo. I should try making these as they look great and not too greasy as the ones I buy in the shop end up giving me indigestion as they are quite greasy (might of course be just that I eat too many of them). x
