Cheese Biscuit Bites

Cheese Biscuit Bites

It dawned on me last week that I haven’t made any savoury biscuits. So I set about changing that and I am glad I did because they are so quick and easy to make. These Cheese Biscuit Bites are a great lunchbox filler and a perfect snack.

I would also say that they are a great alternative to buying the likes of Shapes biscuits etc. For Lunchboxes or days out place a serving of about 10 of these mini bites into a small zip lock bag or small container and you have an easy homemade snack for the littlies.

The recipe is so easy with only four ingredients and a batch making 100 + bites size biscuits you will have a weeks worth done in no time.


1 Cup Plain Flour
50 gm Cold Butter, cubed
1 Tsp Salt
2 Cups Cheddar or Tasty Cheese, grated
3-4 Tbs Cold Water


1. In a food processor or in a bowl if doing by hand. Process or rub together the flour, salt and butter until it resembles a breadcrumb texture.

2. Add the grated cheese and a tbs of water at a time with the food processor on or kneading by hand to form a nice dough ball. It shouldn’t be sticky. If sticky add a little more flour.

3. Place on to floured surface and roll out until it is about 2-3mm thick. Cut with mini cookie cutters or cut into squares. You can even roll into 10cm pieces and bend into curly shapes.

4. Place onto a lined baking tray and bake in a 180 degree Celsius for 10-12 minutes or until lightly golden.

    What does 50 gm equal in our measurements?

    Good question. None of the other measurements are metric! What’s that all about?

      Butter is vary rarely measured in cups as it comes with markings on the butter wrapper with the gram amounts. 50gm butter = 3.5 tablespoons

    I split the batch in 3 and made garlic and herb, Smokey paprika and lemon zest and thyme

      did you keep in the cheese?

    • Amanda Voisey March 26, 2014 at 5:18 am #

      Yes you would have to keep in the cheese otherwise they would be pretty tasteless

    I made these today I did half a batch cheese and the remaining I added vegemite for a marbled effect. Hoping my little one will like them. So easy to make only takes a few minutes.

      What a great idea.

    Loved these! We made them yesterday and added the sesame seeds as some suggested. Delicious.

    Would something like gruyรจre or other hard cheese work for this? I live in Switzerland and no cheddar at the supermarket!!

    • Amanda November 7, 2016 at 12:00 pm #

      Yes, any hard cheese will work.

  12. Carly January 16, 2017 at 2:47 pm #

    These are so good! Easy and delicious ๐Ÿ™‚ Perfect for filling out the Kindy lunchbox, and the 9mo munched on one too. Thanks!

      Great to hear.

    I tried these and they were lovely hot. However when I put them into the fridge they went all soft and blerk. Do you think if they were just stored in the cupboard it would work better?

    • Amanda February 6, 2017 at 12:30 pm #

      Hi Mel, the storage recommendations was to store in an airtight container in the cupboard, not in the fridge. Hope this helps for next time.

    Just came across this recipe, sounds good, I am going to give them a go, but will split recipe after butter and flour, do half with some parmesan added as well as tasty cheese, and as some one suggested the other half add vegemite.
