Cheesy Stars

I’ve been making these little delights for years. They can be varied by adding whatever hard cheeses you have in the fridge, you could also add some spice or herbs, poppy seeds are also a nice addition. They go very well with my homemade Saucy Sweet Chilli Jamney (may blog that recipe soon)

Easy to make, far too easy to keep eating. Great as nibbles, especially with a glass of wine, great at Christmas for gatherings. Lunchbox treats and more.

Cheesy Stars (printable recipe)


25g self raising flour

25g self raising wholemeal flour

50g soft butter, cut in to small chunks

100g finely grated cheese (I used cheddar and parmesan)

Makes about 20 small stars

Preheat oven to 200°C (fan 180°C) GM6

Sieve the flours in a large bowl (adding the bran back in from the wholemeal flour) Add the butter and the cheese. Mix by hand or spoon until it all comes together.

Roll out on a floured surface until about 3-4 mm thick. Cut into shapes using a cookie cutter.

Place on a lightly greased or lined baking sheet allowing a little space around each for expansion. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden. Allow to cool for 5 minutes on the tray and then carefully transfer to a cooling rack. Enjoy ♥
