Last week I was doing cooking with Miss 9 and she found a recipe for Cheese Twists that she wanted to try.
We made a batch. They were nice. We then decided to try a batch with some Greek yogurt we had left over in the fridge and they were DELICIOUS. I made some more (a double batch) yesterday - for Little Athletics today - and hubby, who doesn't like yogurt, asked me to make them again "but make a double batch this time".
So I thought I should probably write down the approximate recipe that we used (this is the standard, not double, batch):
50gm grated cheese - the stronger the tasting cheese the stronger the flavour
75gm self-raising flour, sifted
2 tablespoons Greek yogurt
30gm chilled butter
pinch of salt
Pre-heat oven to 220C (425F).
1. Place cheese, flour, salt and butter into a mixing bowl. Rub together until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs
2. Add yogurt and kneed to a dough. The texture should be a bit moist and smooth. As we've sort of adapted the original recipe, you might need a bit more flour or butter to get the consistency right.
3. Make small balls of the dough and place grease-proof paper covered baking tray.
4. Bake for 8-12minutes or until the balls start to turn golden brown.
5. Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool.
6. Hide from anyone else! and ENJOY
Next time we make them I'll see if they last long enough for a photo.
