  • 100 g Butter diced into small cubes
  • 100 g Plain Flour
  • ½ tsp Dried Rosemary
  • 40 g Grated Cheddar Cheese
  • Milk


  • Mix butter, flour, cheese and rosemary together. Bring to a dough (you should not need to add any water to do this), place in a bowl, cover and chill for at least an hour.
  • Preheat the oven to around 160C.
  • Roll out the dough to around 5mm thick and cut into small rounds (3-4cm). The left over dough can be rolled out again.
  • Place onto a baking tray lined with a non-stick mat or some baking parchment. Do not put them too close together as they will spread a little.
  • Brush the top of each with a little milk and place into the oven. Cook for 12-15 minutes until lightly browned.
  • Remove from the oven and leave to sit on the tray for 4-5 minutes.
  • Carefully remove to a cooling rack. When they are nicely cooled, they are ready to serve.
  • They can be stored in an airtight container for 3-4 days.
