Dairy free cheesy biscuits

Published 18 May, 2008

I'm really getting into this gluten free baking malarkey, but sometimes all those cakes just get tiresome (OK, they don't, I'm just trying to come up with a way to introduce this savoury baking outing ;-)

So I went and made these 'cheesy' dairy free biscuits for munching while lunching, or having with a bit of chee.., er ham?

Gluten free, dairy free cheesy sunflower biscuit recipe

50g dairy free margarine
50g sunflower seeds
200g gram flour
200g rice flour
2 tbsp fake parmesan (parmezano)
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3 tbsp olive oil
160 ml water

Pre-heat your oven to 180C.

Toast the sunflower seeds on a dry pan until golden brown. Sift the dry ingredients together then make a well in the centre and add the olive oil. Rub into the gluten free flour mix with your fingertips. Then add the margarine and do the same.

Stir the water into the mix until combined then get your hands in there and bring it together into a ball of dough. Flour a surface with rice flour and roll the dough out to about 5mm thick. Stamp out biscuits with a biscuit cutter, recombining the dough and re-rolling until the dough is all biscuitified.

Place your biscuits on a lightly greased baking tray and bake for 25-30 mins, or until those cheesy, non-cheesy dairy free gluten free flavour full biccies are done to perfection. Cool on a rack.
