These cheese biscuits are light, savoury and melt-in-your-mouth deliciousness! They're guilty treats, but definitely show their worth in the flavour department.


When it comes to the selection of cheeses, I used gouda, edam and parmesan as my cheese mix. But, you could make your own mixes of cheeses so long as the cheeses you use are matured. In fact, the harder the cheese the better, as it ensures that your biscuits crunch up in the oven and have a crispy result.


As you can imagine, the more mature your cheese is, the more flavoursome it and subsequent biscuits will be!
