Macadamia and Cheese biscuits
« on: November 02, 2015, 06:14:26 am »
These are easy to make, easy to bake and you can keep a raw mix in the freezer ready to bake.
Would make an excellent gift for Xmas, but should be eaten with in 4 days.   I will test this out.

Ingredients

1 cup of raw Macadamia nuts,( make sure they are fresh).
250 g sharp cheddar cheese, cubed
1 egg
1/2 cup plain flour
2 Tablespoons of Black Sesame seed, ( nigella seeds) optional.

Method.
Grind Nuts in TMX leaving a bit of texture, not paste. Set aside
Grind cheese until small crumbs with no large lumps.
Return nuts to bowl and add egg and flour.
Mix at speed 4 until mix comes together. Tip on to Silmat  and if very sticky, add a little more flour.
Form into a flat oval disk about 2 cm thick, 7 to 10 cm wide. ( this will be the length of the biscuit. )
Wrap in glad wrap and freeze for 30 minutes.
Heat oven to 180 o C.
Remove from freezer, remove wrap and with a sharp knife cut thin strips off the dough.
Sprinkle with Black Sesame seeds if desired.
Place on lined oven tray and bake for about 20 minutes until brown around edges.
Cool on wire rack.

Notes.
Mat be able to usePecan or Walnuts or Macadamia nut pieces.
Turn tray for even baking if necessary.
Store in air tight tin.
Recipe adapted from Macadamia Nut site. They have excellent recipes.

I'll try to remember to make them next weekend, we've got people coming over. Otherwise I'd eat them all. I'll let you know how I go!

I love the look of them Chookie and if they taste half as good as they look they will be a winner.   It's always handy to know how long this type of biscuit stays crisp and I find they do stay crispy longer if stored in a metal tin not plastic.

When you mentioned these I wondered if they were the same ones I had put onto Snap recipes. They are.  ;Did haven't made them yet but will do so very soon.
