I’m really enjoying cooking a wonderful array of food for my family on weekends, it’s my way to relax and unwind.  My kids love crackers and dips and I have wanted to try making my own type of cracker of a while.  This is a cheese cracker which I served with avocado horseradish spread and smoked salmon.

After making the mix I divided it in half and rolled into 15cm logs then rolled one log in sesame seeds, the other in poppy seeds.

After refrigerating the logs for 30 minutes, cut into 5mm slices and bake.

I love cheese biscuits! The recipe reminds me of the one my grandmother gave to me, and has since been lost. Thanks Kat!

Turned out beautifully! 🙂 Love the hit of heat the cayenne and poppy seeds provided. 🙂 I made mini versions (about the size of a 20c piece) for gift jars. Thanks for the recipe!! 🙂

These look great, would they be suitable to freeze?

Thanks

I freeze everything I bake, but I have not frozen these, so I am not 100% certain, but then I wouldn’t hesitate in trying.
