cheddar cheese biscuits recipe – one day hubby gets an organic handmade cheddar cheese from a shop. the cheese is pure vegetarian and smells so different than regular cheddar cheese.  he tastes it and does not like the taste…

trouble for me as i have stopped eating cheese and hubby won’t have it now. i cannot let go the whole cheese block go waste. considering one block of organic cheese costs a lot of money. i also cannot add the cheese to his sandwiches or toast.

so i think and think and decide to make these savory whole wheat cheddar cheese biscuits.

am sure if i make anything else with the cheese like bread or croissants or anything… i know it will be just lying in the fridge..

fortunately for me, the biscuits had a wonderful cheesy aroma much different than the original handmade cheese and the hubby ate them nicely without making any faces.

the taste and aroma of a handmade cheese is way different from regular cheese and no animal products like renin are used to culture the cheese.

the vegetarian cheese are cultured with vegetable enzymes. so always check for the details on a packet before buying cheese.

these biscuits tastes like cheese straws and are a different type altogether than my earlier post on cheese biscuits. the old post was the american style cheese biscuits where the biscuits are not crisp but soft like bread.

i have adapted the recipe from my recipe notes and the same recipe with another variation is already on the cheese straws post.

i made a few cheese straws and many biscuits from the dough. they were a bit spicy with lots of red chili powder and black pepper powder.

crisp, buttery and smooth biscuits make an ideal option with ginger tea or filter coffee. great for kids as well if you reduce the amount of red chili powder and pepper. once baked and they are cooled, then store these biscuits in an air-tight box or container.

  1. Hi Dassana! I’m a how fan and follower .. could you please post the recipe to make croissants and cream rolls?Thank you.. much love!

  2. Great recipe Dassana …while the taste is great, it did not look the way your pix do:-( ! The biscuits have only browned on the underside. Any reason ? I baked in a Microwave – Convection mode

  3. Thank you for posting this recipe.Can cheddar cheese be substituted with some other cheese that is easily available or can we omit the cheese in the recipe and bake the biscuits with the remaining ingredients?

    • dear ashwini, cheddar cheese can be substituted for any cheese. i won’t suggest omitting the cheese as it an important ingredient in the recipe. baking without cheese, would mean altering the proportions of the ingredients which i would not recommend.

  4. I don’t know why men are so fussy about food. If it tastes good, I eat it happily. But anyway, I guess, in the bargain, you came up with a great biscuit! They look super.
