Easy Baked Cheese Snacks 
1 cup (100g) finely grated cheddar cheese, packed
1/4 cup room temperature butter
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp ground white pepper
ground black pepper to taste
1/2 cup Flourist Sifted Red Fife Flour
a few drops of water as needed

In a mixing bowl, mix the cheese, butter, salt and peppers together. Use your hands to work in the flour, starting with roughly half, and then adding the rest. Work with your hands until the mixture forms a stiff dough. If the dough is too dry, add a few drops of water to soften. 

Shape the dough into approximately marble sized balls. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and flatten. This recipe should make 24. 

Bake at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Let cool and enjoy. 

Experiment with any hard cheese in the fridge that needs to be used. The possibilities are endless!

Hi Glen, I think olive oil would be a great sub both for health and flavour. The ratio I use is 3:4 olive oil to butter, hasn’t failed me yet…even in shortbread.

I made the recipe with coconut oil, the result was they spread out more while they were cooking. None the less they are so good!


Hi Glen! I haven’t tried this without butter but my guess is it won’t be ideal as olive oil is too liquidy! Let us know if you do try it.

Can I substitute olive oil for butter?
