Cheese & Black Pepper Biscuits

Beware of making these too small (like I did with some of them) or there won't be much biscuit left by the time they finish cooking!


75g unsalted butter (softened)
1 small garlic clove, crushed
50g parmesan, grated
50g cheddar cheese
100g plain flour
Generous grind of black pepper

In a bowl, beat the butter, pepper and garlic until smooth.  Stir in the cheeses and flour, and work into a soft dough.  Add a teaspoon or two of water if it is not sticking together.  Cover with clingfilm and chill for at least 30 mins.

Roll out on a floured surface and cut your biscuit shapes out using cutters.  (You can also roll little balls of the dough and press flat if you prefer.)  Place on baking paper on a baking tray and cook for 15-20 mins at 160 degrees.
