Cheese Biscuits with my Cherub

We were out of school the other day.  While one cherub was away playing with a friend, the other was at home.  She looked through her cookbooks, found a recipe, gathered her apron and we started baking!  We had a great time trying a new recipe.  Later that day, a friend came to play and they feasted on tea and cheese biscuits! 

Cheese Biscuits

Only a Princess Cookbook would have such royal ingredients!

Place the butter, cheese, and Worcestershire sauce in a mixing bowl and mix
together well.  It will be start looking like the above picture.  Then add your flour,
salt, and cayenne pepper.  The mixture was WAY TOO crumbly and wouldn't hold
together to roll out.  So we added a few tablespoons of cream (milk would do).  Start with
2 Tablespoons and mix well.  You want your dough to hold together, sort of like a pie
crust.  If you think you need a bit more liquid, add it.  I would recommend adding just
a bit at a time so that the dough isn't too wet.

Flour your surface and rolling pin and roll out to desired thickness.
We went with about 1/2 inch thick.  We thought it was perfect.

Using a round cookie cutter, cut the dough.  We cut ours out about the size
of a quarter.  It was perfect for having tea!  That'd also be a great size to serve
along side a salad.  If you want a bit bigger -- just do it!  These biscuits are
for you to enjoy!

These biscuits hold their shape, so we just stuffed them on our silpat-lined
backing sheet!  They do bake a little "greasy" because of the cheese, but nothing
you can't deal with -- heck, that's what makes them good!
Bake at 375 for about 10 minutes or until golden brown on the tops.

I'd show you a picture of the finished product -- but they were just too good!  
I think these would do well to roll out and cut with a pizza cutter about 1/2" X 3" for cheese straws.
