Goat’s Cheese Biscuits…Posted: October 3, 2012
These biscuits are utterly butterly, rich and flaky and would work brilliant as a basis for a canapé. They are also great for a snack and brilliant for cheese and biscuits if you make slightly larger ones. They are also very easy to make so would be great to make with kids or for the less experienced baker! I made them in a food processor which makes it really easy but you could make them by hand as well!
This recipe made about 40 small biscuits suitable for canapés but you could make fewer larger biscuits instead! Here’s how to do it!
100g Soft Goat’s Cheese
3 tbsp Freshly Grated Parmesan
150g Unsalted Butter (softened)
1/4 tsp of Cayenne Pepper
175g Plain Flour
1. To begin you will need to put the goat’s cheese, 2tbsp of the parmesan, butter and cayenne pepper in the food processor.
2. Blend the ingredients until smooth (as below). Next you will need to add the flour.
3. Add the flour and blend until just combined. Remove it from the mixer (after turning it off and removing the blade!). Ball the mix up, it may need a little knead to bring it together.
4. Wrap the dough in cling film and put it in the fridge for 2 hours until firm.
5. When removed from the fridge place the dough on a floured surface and using a floured rolling pin roll to about 1/2 a cm thick. Preheat the oven to 180C (160C if its a fan oven or Gas mark 4).
6. Using a lightly floured cutter of your choice cut the biscuits and place on a baking tray lined with baking paper.
7. Sprinkle the biscuits with the remaining parmesan and place in the oven baking for 12 minutes or until golden brown!
8. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack! They keep really well in an airtight container for at least 5 days! Enjoy!
