Interesting things, these. I had quite a lot of Saint Augur cheese left over after Christmas so I thought I’d put it to good use – but possibly Stilton that we’d devoured would have worked better here.
Unlike most cheese biscuits, these actually look HEALTHY. It might be because of the oats visible when you slice the pastry block – or the greenish tinge courtesy of blue cheese. Anything green these days seems to signal wholesome or superfood - see super smoothies. I must say I’m not quite on that bandwagon – blending perfectly nice and crunchy cucumbers or cabbage and mixing them with weird combination of hemp, chia seeds, almond milk and some such (I wouldn’t). Just get a celery stick, at least there’s some fibre in it.
But the biscuits don’t TASTE like a green smoothie thank God. They should be cut quite thin – they don’t expand so you get what you see. The recipe is from Dan Lepard’s ‘Short and Sweet’.
