If you are looking for something other than crackers or bread to accompany your favorite soup, I've got the perfect recipe for you. These cheesy little biscuits are slightly crispy on the outside and flaky on the inside. My kids said they tasted like fluffy Cheez-its!
Here's what you need:
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 TBSP Worcestershire sauce
1 cup flour
1/4 teas salt
Dash of cayenne pepper
In a large bowl, combine the butter, cheese and Worcestershire sauce until well blended.
Stir in the flour, salt and cayenne pepper. Lightly grease your hands, then use them to form the dough into a ball. Okay, so that's not a ball. It's more like a mound. Place the dough mound onto a cookie sheet lined with wax paper.
Roll the dough out until it's about a quarter of an inch thick. Use a small cookie cutter to cut into cool shapes. Take the scraps of dough and re-roll. Cut out more shapes. Repeat until all the dough has been used. I got 24 small biscuits out of the dough.
Place the cut-outs onto a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
The cheese on the outside of the biscuits crisped up so nicely. The inside was buttery and flaky. It was hard to stop eating them....even after the soup was gone! These biscuits would make a great addition to a brunch table, too.
