Baking Cheesy Shapes
Me and mum did some baking when my brother was at soccer traning.
We baked cheesy shapes from this book that my grandma gave me.
Mum sid I should tell you how we did it.
We made them gluten free becos I am gluten free.
What you need:
1 cup of gluten free baking flour e.g. Bakels (or just regular flour)
50g of butter
one egg yolk
5 spoons of cold water
half a cup of grated cheese
Sift the flour into a big bowl.
Cut up the butter into chunks like this. it looks like cheese but its not
Rub the butter into the flour til it looks like breadcrumbs. my mum showed me what to do.
My mum separated the egg yok for me. Then you mix the egg and the water together. It is fun to mix the egg and the water.
Then you grate the cheese. be careful cos i grated my finger and it hurts.
Then you mix the cheese and the egg into the flour and squish it together with your hands until it makes a ball of dough like this. Then you wrap it up with gladwrap and you put it in the frdige for half and hour. This helps it stick together and be easier to roll and cut out the shapes.
then you roll out the dough and cut out some shapes. We put ours on baking paper cos than it dosnt stick to the tray. We sprinkled some cheese on top and then put it in the oven to cook.
We baked it for about 10 minutes in the oven at 180oC. It doesn't take long so we had to watch to make sure they don't get burnt.
This is what a cheesy biscuit looks like when it is cooked.
They taste real yummy. Everybody liked them. We had some in our lunch boxes the next day.
PS My mum says if you take out the cheese and add 3 desertspoons of sugar instead, you can make sweet cookies with this recipe too and it doesn't spread everywhere when you use gluten free flour.
