Blog Hop

Each week, on Tuesday, MckLinky will host a "blog hop". All participants are invited to put up a post on the same day and post the SAME MckLinky list as everyone else.


This week the theme is  Favorite Recipe or Dish.

I love cheese, every kind of cheese so one of my favorite cookies are made with cheese.

Nigella Lawson’s Cheesy Feet

These scrumptious cheese biscuits are from a recipe in Nigella Lawson's cookbook, Feast: Food to Celebrate Life. She calls it "Cheesy Feet" because she uses a foot-shaped cookie cutter. But, as she points out in the recipe, you can use any shape you want.

CheesyFeetNAMINAMI Ingredients:

Makes about 16 feet

  • 1 ½ cups Cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 ½ tablespoons soft butter
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼  teaspoon baking powder



- Preheat the oven to 200C.

- Place all ingredients into a food processor and blitz until comes together (if you haven't got a food processor, then mix grated cheese, soft butter chunks, flour and baking powder in a bowl and work between your fingers until combined).

- Form a flat disc, wrap in a plastic wrap and let it rest in the fridge for 15 minutes.

- Roll the rested dough on a floury surface to about 3 mm in thickness, and cut out your feet with feet-shaped cookie cutters. You can keep re-rolling this dough and cutting out feet until it is all used up.

- Put them on a lined baking sheet and cook in the preheated oven for 10 minutes, until slightly golden on edges.

NB! Overcooked cheese cookies taste nasty and bitter, so take them out of the oven when still light golden.

- Transfer the cookies to a metal rack and allow to cool.
