Cheesy Shapes

This is an easy and healthy snack for kids which I’ve adapted from a recipe of Nigella Lawson’s. Although it’s definitely her creation and I clearly remember the picture that went with it (of cheesy feet!), I have guessed at the ingredients to produce these because I couldn’t immediately locate the original recipe. Nevertheless, it’s hard to go wrong with this one. Trust me!

  • cheddar cheese or mix of cheeses, grated, 500g
  • plain flour, 150g
  • butter, softened, a couple of tablespoons of

  1. Preheat the oven to about 175C, 390F
  2. In a food processor, pulse the grated cheese with the flour
  3. Add the butter and pulse further till the dough comes together
  4. Divide it into managable rounded pieces, wrap and refrigerate
  5. After 15 minutes, roll out each round and cut into whatever shape you fancy
  6. Bake till golden brown, about 10 mins
  7. Allow to cool and place in an airtight container
  8. Serve whenever the kids are hungry!
