Well, I made an unusually well received dinner tonight- a couscous salad and pork loin. I probably should try to keep up the streak. I need to use some asparagus tomorrow–any suggestions?
In any case, I think I will buy some good will on their part by making these Cheese Biscuits. The bread hater will be at a sleepover. The rest of the family will enjoy. Warning–these are more cheese straw or a cheese shortbread than biscuit.
1/2 lb butter
1/2 lb extra sharp cheddar cheese
2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
3/4 red pepper
Cream butter, add grated cheese. Sift flour, salt and pepper. Add to cheese mixture. If too stiff, add a little cream. Flour a sheet of wax paper. Take out mixture in fourths–roll back and forth until you have a roll about the size of a 50 cent piece. Roll this in another sheet of wax paper and put in fridge to harden (overnight works well). When ready to use, slice down and bake on cookie sheet in 375 oven 10-20 minutes. This will keep in the fridge for some time and can be frozen.
