Healthy Cheese Biscuits in 20 mins

Cheese Biscuits

I’ve been craving cheese sticks since having some homebaked ones at a friend’s house on Monday. I was a little piggy and finished the container! They were yummy, Cath! She told me how easy they were to make so it played on mind that I could whip some up quickly too.

So after dinner last night, I pulled out my trusty Edmonds Cookery Book and found a recipe for cheese biscuits. I modified it to make a healthier version and I think they’re delicious, even if I do say so myself. Haha… It was hard for us not to eat the whole batch all at once!

I’ve shared with you my version and I think it’s a good base recipe. I’m thinking that it might also work well with garlic powder and cheese or rosemeary and sea salt. I might try those next week. Happy baking!

1 cup wholemeal plain flour
1 tablespoon icing sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
pinch of sea salt
pinch of ground paprika
25 g light margarine/ spread
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
3 tablespoons skim milk, approximately


  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees celsius and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Sift flour, icing sugar, baking powder, salt and paprika into a bowl.
  3. Cut butter into flour mixture and rub in until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  4. Mix in cheese.
  5. Add just enough milk to form a stiff dough.
  6. Knead lightly and roll out to 2mm thinkness.
  7. Cut into squares and place onto lined baking tray.
  8. Prick each square with a fork.
  9. Bake in preheated oven for 10 mins or until lightly golden.
  10. Sprinkle biscuits with a pinch of sea salt. Eat when cool.

Makes 25.
