3 Ingredient Cheese Shortbreads

Servings 20
Author FAB Flour


  • 150 g self-raising flour
  • 100 g salted butter, chilled and cubed
  • 75 g grated cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C (fan) and line your baking tray with parchment.

  2. In the mixing bowl, crumble the grated cheese with your fingers to make it as fine as possible. Remove 25g and set to one side.

  3. Add the flour, followed by the butter into the remaining cheese, then bring it together with your fingers until a dough is formed.

  4. Tip the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and roll it out to a thickness of about 5mm, then cut out rounds using the cutter or alternative.

  5. Place onto the baking tray, then sprinkle each biscuit using the remaining 25g of crumbled cheese.

  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden, then allow to cool before serving.
