Love Marmite, cheese and chilli? These biscuits are the ultimate savory snacks if you do. I usually make them before going away for the weekend, but they normally all get eaten before we arrive. I love Marmite but if you’re not so keen, this can be omitted and they will still taste great.
50g butter (cubed)
200g white self-raising flour
200g mature cheddar cheese (grated – with the small grate)
2tsp dried chilli flakes
2 or 3tbsp water
Firstly, put the butter and flour into a bowl and rub with your hands until it resembles breadcrumbs. Then add the Marmite, water, finely grated cheese and chilli flakes.
Once the fixture is thoroughly combined, it should stick together in ball. If it is too watery, add more flour. Once it is no longer sticky and keeps its shape, wrap in clingfilm and leave in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
Put the oven on to 200 degrees. Roll out the mixture onto a floured surface until it is about half a centimeter thick. Then cut out the shapes you desire and put onto a baking tray.
It should take about 20 minutes in the oven – but keep an eye on them. Make sure you don’t overcook them otherwise they will taste bitter. They should keep for a about three days.
