Cookies – Cheddar Thyme Flaky Biscuits 9.5/10

Cookies – Cheddar Thyme Flaky Biscuits 9.5/10

January 7 2009

NGREDIENTS (Nutrition)
• 3/4 cup and 2 teaspoons flour 100g
• 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder 7g
• 1 tablespoon and 1/2 teaspoon white sugar 15g
• 1/4 teaspoon salt 1g
• 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar 0.6g
• 3 tablespoons and 1/2 teaspoon butter or margarine 45g
• 1/4 cup and 2 teaspoons milk 70ml
• 3 tablespoons and 1/2 teaspoon shredded Cheddar cheese 25g
• 1-1/4 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme 1g

This recipe’s Ingredients were scaled to yield a new amount. The directions below still refer to the original recipe yield of 10 biscuits.
1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
2. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and cream of tartar. Cut in butter using a pastry cutter or a fork until it is the size of peas. Make a well in the center of the mixture and measure the milk, cheese and thyme into the bowl. Gently mix until a soft dough forms.
3. Roll or pat out on a floured surface to 3/4 inch thick. Cut into circles and place on a baking sheet.
4. Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the bottoms of the biscuits are golden brown.

I only put in 70% as suggested thyme, and I didn’t really taste the thyme in the cookies, but I put a bit more cheddar cheese, like perhaps 10% more? Anyways it ended up tasting very nice. When it was just taken out of the oven, which took about 15minutes because I made it into like a size of little breads, the insides were a bit on the liquid side. However, after it has become cooler, it became a bit more solid. When it has become fully cooled down, it was still a bit moist on the inside. Really need to make it more flat next time. But still a very nice tasting bread
