Crispy Cheese Biscuits


Crispy Cheese Biscuits – anyone? J

This is a wonderful and irresistible savoury biscuits which I have baked for CNY.
 It’s delicious and easy to make.  It’s not the type of cookies that will melt in the mouth.  These biscuits are crunchy and tasty.  

It is supposed to make the dough into a bow.  Since this is for CNY, I made them into ‘8’ shape - 
Isn’t it great to have Cheese and发!for this Chinese New Year? J
Wishing all of you a year of  发!

60g         Caster sugar
1 no.        Egg white
180g       Plain flour
¼ tsp       baking powder
20g         parmesan cheese (grated)
20g         grated cheese (I used cheddar cheese)
20g         additional grated cheese for dipping
