Maxi-Cheddar
by for £2.00

Pages: 1   2    

Ingredients

300g Plain flour (500g for 27p = about 15p)
200g butter (500g for £1.36 = about 75p)
200g cheap mature cheese (500g for £1.93 = about 85p)
2 eggs (6 for 94p = about 32p)
pinch of salt and pepper
Mini cheddars multipack for comparison - £1.15 (eagle eyed pimpers will notice these are Branston Pickle flavoured, which is pretty pimped in itself. Well done McVities.)

Total cost = about £2 (but it made 2 big cheddars, a potato head, and 6 stars!!)

Have to be fair, I got this recipe from this link - http://www.hookerycookery.com/biscuit010.htm and doubled it, which turned out to be unnecessary.

1. This was a very easy but effective recipe. To be honest, I didn’t follow it to the letter, but it turned out okay anyway. Using my trusty food processor, I put in everything except the cheese, mixed together, and then grated the cheese into it using the attachment. It took about 5 minutes.

2. After looking at the actual cheddars, I realised they are perfectly round, and I don’t have a cookie cutter big enough (surprisingly). Instead, I decided to bake the biscuit in a flan tin, using the base of the tin as a template to cut out the pastry.

3. I was pretty chuffed at this point, and was fully confident the cheddar would be perfectly round. To celebrate, I put in the little prick holes, spelling out ‘Pimp That Snack’. It’s not very clear, but honestly, it was there.
