80 g cheddar cheese

240 g flour

1 tsp baking powder

Method:

1.    Grate the cheddar cheese and set aside.

3.    Fold in grated cheese, flour, and baking powder.

4.    Shape the dough into logs (about 4-cm in diameter).

5.    Wrap the logs with cling wrap and keep in refrigerator for at least 1 hour or until the dough is firm enough.

6.    Open the wrap and cut up the dough into fat coins (about 2-cm thick)

7.    Arrange the coins onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

8.    Bake at 170 C for 20 mins.

Note: For a smaller baking batch, you can keep the leftover dough logs in freezer and bake them anytime you want to.
