Bromberg's spicy cheese crackers

Method

  • Put the flour, baking powder, salt and cayenne in a processor and mix well. 
  • Then put the cold butter cubes through the feeder tube, a few at a time, and continually mix until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. 
  • Transfer the mixture to a very large bowl and add both the grated cheeses. Mix together with your hands and then add ½ cup cold water. Mix until the dough forms a ball, adding a little more water if needed. 
  • Divide the dough into 2 and roll into even rolls on a lightly floured workbench. Then wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours. 
  • Preheat oven to 180°C fan forced (200°C normal). 
  • Let the dough sit for about 10 mins, before slicing and placing on baking sheets. Then cook in the oven for about 10-12 mins until lightly puffed and golden. 
  • Slightly cool the biscuits before serving. 
  • nb.  All the dough doesn’t need to be used at once – it can be frozen. Just make sure the dough is thawed well before using.
