Cheesy biscuits

Amidst all the hat knitting, and due to financial constraints, there's been a lot of thought going into cooking, meal planning and generally trying to use what ingredients we have instead of visiting the supermarket at least every few days.

The family is hungry, and they must be fed!

Yesterday was a bit of a cooking marathon. I made lunches for preschool, omelette, banana bread, rice bubble slice, yoghurt in our Easiyo maker, and the usual breakfast lunch and dinner!

Today's effort were these Cheesy Biscuits, of which half have been eaten already so I know they're a hit.

We had used this recipe the other night to make yeast-free pizza bases, and while it was okay, it was a bit too biscuity for our tastes.
I thought, therefore, it'd be a good one to try for cheesy biscuits.
I'll copy the recipe here with the modifications we did.

Cheesy Biscuits
1¾ cups self-raising flour
½ cup Parmesan cheese
¼ cup vegetable oil
⅔ cup boiling water

1. Preheat oven to 200'C
2. Place flour and cheese in a bowl. Make a well in the dry ingredients and add oil and boiling water.
3. Stir with a fork to combine. Knead just to combine. Divide dough into two portions. (I did this as it was easier to handle half the dough at a time).
Roll out to 0.5cm thick. Cut into shapes, bake in the oven for 5 minutes.

Makes 30 (depending on your cutters!)

Was a great one for the kids to help with the cutting out too.
