On day four I give you a recipe...
This is a Paul Hollywood recipe and whilst the man may have fallen from my favour for his shenanigans, he does know how to bake a wonderful cheesy biscuit. Light, flaky melt in your mouth and so easy!
They don't look much but they taste wonderful and are the perfect accompaniment to drinks... I like mine with a glass of chilled Oloroso.
75g plain flour
75g unsalted butter, cubed
75g Gruyere cheese, finely grated
Whizz together the flour and butter in a food processor until it looks like breadcrumbs. Add the cheese and continue to process until the mixture forms a ball. Wrap in clingfilm and chill for half hour.
Pre-heat oven to 200 deg C and line two baking sheets with non stick baking parchment. Roll the dough out to about 5mm thick and cut out circles with a 5 cm round biscuit cutter. (You should get about 24 biscuits.) Put the circles onto the baking sheets and leave them well spaced. Bake for 10 minutes (watch that they don't get too brown). Grind with salt and pepper while they are still warm and allow to cool.
Apparently they will keep for a few days in an airtight tin but I can't confirm that as they never last more than a few minutes in our house!
