Gluten Free Mini Cheddars Recipe

I was really craving some mini cheddars so I had a go at making gluten free biscuits that kinda resemble them...

They aren't exactly the same but my gluten eating husband say they taste pretty similar.

I developed this recipe from my Parmesan & Herb BiscuitsI love cheesy biscuits and these go great with a nice glass of wine. 

(Makes roughly 26 biscuits)

150g Plain gluten free flour blend (plus extra for sprinkling)
100g margarine (not butter)
50g strong cheddar, finely grated
Freshly ground black pepper 

Small pinch of table salt
Big pinch fine sea salt

In a mixing bowl, rub the margarine and flour together until the mixture forms a breadcrumb-like texture.

Add the cheese, table salt and pepper then bring it all together with your hands until it forms a dense dough.

Sprinkle a clean work surface with the extra flour and knead the dough for a brief moment until it is nice and smooth. Wrap it in cling film and leave to rest in the fridge for an hour.

Preheat the oven to 190c and roll out the chilled dough between two sheets of baking parchment until about half a centimetre thick.

Line a large baking tray with baking paper and grease very lightly with a very small amount of sunflower oil.

Cut out small biscuits with a small cutter and gently place on the lined baking tray. 
Poke each biscuit a few times with a fork then bake in the preheated oven for about 15 minutes until golden & slightly crisp. 
Sprinkle with the sea salt then allow to cool on a wire rack before serving.
