Plain and simple, I love these cheese biscuits. I think I have made thousands of these over the years. They are very simple and straightforward to make – only five ingredients needed, and the spices are optional. You can make them in under 30 minutes, which really makes them great for parties and gatherings, or for when you simply want warm cheese biscuits for a snack. They also make great little sandwiches, and they are really good for dips.

250 grams Feta cheese
250 grams butter, softened
300 grams plain flour
½ teaspoon paprika
½ teaspoon salt

Add the softened butter into a large bowl, then beat with a hand-held mixer on medium setting, until creamy. Add in the Feta cheese, along with the spices, blend on low until combined, then increase the speed and blend until completely creamy. If you want to leave some larger pieces of Feta in the biscuits, you can, they will bake beautifully nevertheless. Gradually start adding the flour, blending with a mixer at first, then switching to a wooden spoon, until you get a soft, pliable dough. If it is really warm when you make these, place the dough in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.
Lightly flour your work surface and quickly roll out the dough to about 5 mm thick, and cut out rounds with a small cookie cutter (2.5 centimetres). Line two large baking sheets with baking paper, then arrange the dough circles. These biscuits do not spread at all when baked, so have no worries about crowding the baking sheets. Bake them in a preheated oven, at 200°C (400°F), for about 15 minutes, or until golden. Serve immediately. Yields 80 small cheese biscuits.
