A delicious, savoury shortbread made with cheese, which is perfect for serving with drinks
Cuisine: Snacks
Serves: 24 biscuits
  • 100g softened butter
  • 50g cornflour
  • 100g plain flour
  • 150g St Andrews Mature Farmhouse Cheese
  • ½ tsp salt
  1. Soften butter in a good-sized mixing bowl. Grate cheese and weigh seasoned flours.
  2. Work in the cheese with a little flour and gradually work in remaining flour to create smooth pliable dough. Use your hands to bind ingredients so the cheese isn't 'mashed'.
  3. Evenly divide dough into balls, place on a lined tray and press with a fork to flatten with design.
  4. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180C for 15-20 minutes until golden.
  5. Allow to cool on tray before moving.
