Cheese and Curry biscuits

Ingredients
90 grams parmesan cheese, grated
180 grams plain flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
90 grams cold butter, diced
2 teaspoons curry powder, home made
3 egg yolks
20 to 30 grams of water (may need more or less depending on flour)

Method
Pre-heat oven to 200˙
Place flour, baking powder, salt and curry powder into bowl. Blitz for 4 seconds on speed 9, instead of sifting.
Add the cold butter and blend on speed 6 for 5 seconds or until the mix looks like breadcrumbs. Add the cheese and mix on speed 4 for 4 seconds.
Add the egg yolks and while the TM is running on speed 4 slowly add water, giving the mix plenty of time to form a soft dough.
Turn on to a floured surface and knead gently until quite smooth.
Roll out until fairly thin approx  3mm (1/8 inch). Cut dough into 2 inch squares or use a biscuit cutter or the MC, place on lined baking trays prick all over with a fork then bake for 10 to 15 minutes. The biscuits do shrink a little.

If you have some dried onion flakes brush your biscuits with a little oil and sprinkle the onion on top before baking.

These are very moorish biscuits and are quite yummy by themselves but by all means have them with nice creamy dips or soft cheeses.  :D

Love the idea of curry powder in them.

My DH would love these.

They are very nice dede. I used bought curry powder not homemade and maybe could have put another tsp in.

I will try these on the weekend. Think I have already printed out the recipe to try, just haven't got around to making them.

I can verify that these biscuits live up to this thread's name! Very yummy - I used bought curry powder, probably a little less than the recipe to suit kids' tastes - no complaints from them! My dough was a bit crumbly, think I needed to add a little more water. Would make again.
