Mini Biscuit Wedges
If you like savoury snacks, this quick and easy biscuit recipe will surely delight you. The biscuits come out soft and delicious. They are wonderful on their own, enjoyed with a cup of tea or with meals if you like. Savour them freshly from the oven, (after you let them cool for a bit, of course) and enjoy the taste of soft, moist and cheesy biscuits in all their glory. I like to eat them split in half and spread with some butter while still warm. They melt in your mouth…
1-3/4 cup flour
1/4 cup margarine
2-1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup whipping cream
1/4 cup milk
2 tbsp. sour cream, for brushing
2 tbsp. finely grated Swiss or Emmental cheese
In a medium bowl mix together flour and margarine with a pastry cutter, until all blended.
Add baking powder, salt, whipping cream and milk. Stir together to form a dough.
Place dough on a floured board adding a bit more flour and knead a few times then fold the dough and form dough into a rectangular shape.
Roll dough out gently to about 1/2 inch thickness. Brush top with sour cream. Sprinkle with the grated cheese.
Cut across into strips, about 2 inch wide, then cut across each strip diagonally to form wedges.
Place wedges about 1/2 inch apart on a cookie sheet.
Bake in pre-heated oven at 375 F for 12-15 minutes or until top becomes golden brown.
Makes: about 2-1/2 dozen
