So, after baking a batch of biscuits for a dear friend’s pre-birthday party for her soon-to-arrive bubs, I thought I’d share this kitchen adventure with you.
“Why all the fuss”, you ask? After all they’re just bikkies, right? WRONG!!! These tasty morsels were…wait for it…savoury bikkies. That’s right. Savoury!!
In a sea of baby shower sweeties, these savoury delights were a welcome sight. There they sat; in all of their flaky, cheesy, buttery glory, piled high and ready for the taking.
And by golly were these things tasty! Totally moreish. And made to a small enough size that you (and by “you” I mean “I”) could easily justify eating several. In very quick succession. Before going back for more (don’t judge).
The reason I’m raving about these cheesy champs is that they are an absolute cinch to make. They literally have just 5 ingredients:
- Blue Cheese
- Unsalted Butter
- Plain Flour
They begin with crumbly (and slightly stinky) blue cheese and, after a quick stint in the oven, are transformed into a buttery, flaky, golden masterpiece that are cripsy outside and a mouth-wateringly soft inside.
These blue cheese beauties involve minimum input with maximum belly satisfaction, making them perfect for bringing along to any shindig.
I find these bikkies are at their peak-tastiness on the day they’re made, so are best eaten then, though they do keep well for a few days.
