Cheddar Pennies


  1. 50g/2oz/4 tbsp butter
  2. 115g/4oz/1 cup Cheddar cheese, grated
  3. 40g/1 1/2oz/1/3 cup plain flour
  4. Pinch of salt
  5. Pinch of chili powder

  • With an electric mixer, cream the butter until soft.
  • Stir in  the cheese, flour, salt and chilli. Gather to form a dough.
  • Transfer to a lightly floured surface. Shape into a cylinder about 3cm in diameter. Wrap in greaseproof paper and chill for 1-2 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 180/350/Gas 4. Grease 1-2 baking sheets.
  • Cut the dough into 5mm thick slices and place on the prepared baking sheets. Bake for about 15 minutes, until golden. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

I've only made these once, but they are quite tasty, especially with pre-dinner drinks.
