Cheesy bisuits

These Cheese biscuits are wonderfully crumchy and quite unlike anything you will expect. They use cornflakes which give them something uniquely South African and are well worth making. They lasted less than a day and are very morish.

What you need

125g butter
3/4 cup grated cheddar (use a mature cheddar)
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 cup self raising flour
1 cup crushed corn flakes
1 egg lightly beaten
Milk

The process

Heat your oven to 180 Celsius and lightly butter a baking tray.

To a bowl add the butter, grated cheddar and cayenne pepper. Beat with a electric beater until smooth.

Sift in the flour, add the crushed corn flakes and the egg and stir until evenly distributed. Don’t use the mixer.

Use a teaspoon to roll small balls and place them about 4cm apart on the baking tray. Give each one a light press with a fork and a brush with a little milk.

Bake for 15 minutes until light brown.

Cool on a rack and dig in. They will be crunchy and delightfully cheesy. You could also add a pinch of curry powder if you like that sort of flavour. The peanut butter cookies are great sweet cookies, try them.
