Makes approx 9 Approx 24p per biscuit

Prep time 10 minutes Cooking time 20 minutes





  • 200g plain flour
  • 130g cold butter
  • 100g grated cheddar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried rosemary






Rub the flour & butter together until you have a breadcrumb consistency. Stir in the egg yolk, cheese & rosemary & bring the mixture together to form a dough.

Alternatively put all the ingredients into a food processor & blitz together to form the dough.




Knead briefly on a lightly floured surface then divide the mixture into two. Form each portion of the dough into a log approx 4cm in diameter.

Wrap each log in cling film & pop them in the fridge for about an hour.

Heat the oven to 180C/160 Fan/Gas 4. Remove the dough from the fridge.

Using a sharp knife, slice the logs into rounds about 1cm thick & place on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Leave a gap of about 3cm between each round.



Bake in the oven for 20 minutes until lightly golden.

Cool on wire rack. The biscuits should keep for about a week in an airtight container.
