I have another recipe on here for regular Cheese Biscuits, one that my grandmother used to make for the family. Cheese Biscuits are what dreams are made of in our family – they bring back all kinds of memories.
So, since being diagnosed with Coeliac Disease, and having to go Gluten Free, I thought I’d give it a try by making some.
I used Edmond’s Gluten Free Flour (I bought mine from Countdown), and felt it really worked well. The “biscuits” cooked quicker than regular flour, so didn’t get that golden glow. Also, they were extremely crunchy. Nothing wrong with that, but sometimes I like mine a little chewy.
5 cups grated cheese (Tasty is best, but I used Edam)
1 cup Gluten Free Flour (I used Edmond’s)
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup cold water
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees.
In a large bowl, add the grated cheese, flour, salt and water. Mix together until it forms a dough, that can be rolled out. You may need to add more flour / water to get it to the right consistency. However, don’t add too much flour because you’ll lose the cheesy taste.
Split the dough in half and roll out your dough to about a 1cm thickness. Cut into “biscuits”, place on a lined tray.
Bake in the oven for 15 minutes.
Repeat with the other half of the dough.
