Cheesy Biscuits

Recently we had lunch at Benjy’s were they served cheese biscuits in lieu of the standard bread basket. They were quite good and we decided to try to make our own. We got the recipe from Caribbean Cookbook A Lifetime of Recipes by Rita G. Springer. The original recipe uses a cookie press which we don’t have so we rolled them out and used a cookie cutter. For cheese we used a combination of Romano and Parmesan. Once baked they were light and airy and delicious.

Cheese Biscuits

4 oz flour
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 oz grated cheese
3 oz margarine
1 egg yolk
iced water

Mix flour, grated cheese, salt and pepper.
Rub in margarine and mix to a smooth paste with egg yolk.
Roll out and cut.
Bake at 350 F for 20 minutes.
Cool on wire rack.

Had already eaten half of them by the time the picture was taken.
