Cheese Biscuits

Chinese New Year was celebrated about 1 ½ months ago and there are two recipes for biscuits which I will be featuring here. One of the recipes is Cheese Biscuits – an all-time favourite of my wife. The Cheese Biscuits shown above were baked by my mother-in-law, one of the 10 types of biscuits she baked this year. Oh yes, my mother-in-law is good with baking.

These Cheese Biscuits have the usual cheesy taste – cheddar cheese to be exact. So, there is a little bit of saltiness and sweetness. Kids love them as well. The above Cheese Biscuits were came in a crescent moon shape. You can use any mould you want. Just be a little creative.

This is my mother-in-law’s recipe for Cheese Biscuits



  • 230 grammes of cheedar cheese (sliced)
  • 1 egg
  • 170 grammes butter
  • 340 grammes flour
  • a little soda
  • a little salt



Sieve flour and soda together.

Put salt, butter and egg into mixer. Beat until fluffy and light. Then, add in cheese slices and flour. Mix well.

Put dough between grease paper and flatted it with rolling pin. Cut into smaller pieces and arrange on baking tray. Brush egg yolk over them, bake for about 15 minutes at 180 degrees Celcius.

    AG : You can add a little castor sugar if you want it a little sweet. It’s up to you really. And you can also shred some cheddar cheese on top of the biscuits for beauty and added flavour.

    I love cheese a lot ! I don’t bake cakes and cookies althought I’m a big fan of desserts coz I’m afraid I can’t handle and a lot of ingredients will be needed. But this one seems to be quite simple, I would like to try and hope it will turns out well

    Can we use self-raising flour instead of plain flour? And do I still need to put baking soda?

    Elaine : I would suggest that you stick to the recipe as I am not sure how it would turn out if self-raising flour is used.
