Are you the savoury kind of person or would rather have something sugary? When it comes to snacks, l think it pretty much depends on my mood.

Sometimes l just can’t have enough of sweets, other times l go crazy on the savoury stuff.

Cheese has always been my weakness, so it goes without saying that anything cheesy, and l’m a happy bunny. A very happy one!

Plus, there are cravings, and there are pregnancy cravings. Oh dear Lord, if one pregnant woman wants something, be sure she gets it.

Fancy a cheddar cheese snack? Not a problem, oven on, and problem sorted. It’s that easy! Just leave them to cool long enough, if you can, and you’ll just love them.

How do you make cheddar cheese bites?

The bites are similar in textures with my Homemade Cheese Crackers (Baby and Toddler Friendly). They have the same flakiness, and gorgeous savoury kick.

  • start by rubbing the butter with flour until it resembles breadcrumbs

Make sure the butter is cold straight from the fridge, it helps achieve the texture we need.

  • add the feta cheese, and half of the parmesan cheese, and knead gently into a dough
  • cover the ball with clinfilm, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes
  • use a rolling pin to roll the dough into about half a centimetre thickness, then cut rounds using either a cookie cutter or a glass
  • beat the egg lightly, brush each round with egg, then sprinkle over the paprika and remaining parmesan cheese
  • bake for about 20 minutes until golden

    A scrumptious-looking recipe, Daniella, ideal for over the Christmas period. Cheddar cheese would be the one for me.
