Savory Cheddar Cheese Biscuits

by Maria on December 10, 2009

I recently met Kelsey, The Naptime Chef, and was immediately impressed with her friendly, upbeat personality, her talent in the kitchen and her incredibly delicious double chocolate cookies.

When she posted these delightful cheddar cheese biscuits recently, I knew I had to make them myself. A cross between a cracker and shortbread, these flavorful cheese biscuits are light, buttery and completely addicting. They blend good quality sharp cheddar, butter, paprika, red pepper and pecans, and they couldn’t be easier to make. You simply mix the dough, roll into logs, chill, slice and bake. The result is a sophisticated, savory appetizer or snack.

For the recipe, see Kelsey’s blog. I have a feeling you’re going to be seeing a lot of her in the future — her star is on the rise!

Honestly, I'm not a bake. Where these truly easy to make? Do you really think they're fool-proof?

Please advise.

(Miss you!)

Maria, I challenge you. At this time of the year I yearn for a good English sausage roll. Ever tried to make one?

Maria December 10, 2009 at 10:25 pm

I'm not really a baker, either. But they were very easy. Miss you too!

Mrs. Ament/Beryl!
So lovely to see you here, thanks for commenting. I've never made an English sausage roll but they sound terrific and I think I need to accept your challenge. Merry Christmas to you and the whole gang…
