We are having heavy rain for the past few days, so its nice and cold at night, perfect opportunity for me to make soup. I wanted to have something to dip into with the soup and made these delicious cheese biscuits by Gordon Ramsay.
This is the first time I made this kind of savory biscuits , they ended up slightly thinner , maybe next time I will make them slightly thicker... Added a pinch of paprika for added flavour.
Recipe : Gordon Ramsay's American Style Cheese Biscuits adapted from his book The Ultimate Home Cooking
175g plain flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp sea salt or 1/2 tsp table salt
50 chedder cheese , grated
275 ml cream ( thickened cream or regular cream)
pinch ground black pepper
pinch smoked paprika (optional)
15 butter melted
Preheat oven to gas mark 3, line a baking sheet with baking paper.
Sift flour and baking powder and salt into a bowl.Add paprika , pepper , cheese and give a stir to mix. Make a well in the centre. Pour cream into the well and using the end of a wooden spoon mix till the mixture comes together.
Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work top and knead couple of times ( not so much) . Roll to about 1/2 inch thick and cut into rounds or triangles. Arrange , 1 inch apart , on prepared tray and leave to rest for 10 minutes.
Brush the tops with melted butter and bake for about 20- 30 minutes. Remove and cool on wire rack and serve warm or cool with stews or soups or even just as it is as a snack.
