Cashew Nutters

I found this recipe for these savoury biscuits tucked away on a scrap of paper at the back of a cookery book. I haven't made them in years. I had forgotten how good they were.

125g butter, softened
60g semolina
100g self-raising flour
90g  cheddar cheese, grated
salt and pepper
½ level teaspoon dry mustard
cashew nuts for topping

 Oven to 160 fan

Put all the ingredients, except the nuts into a  food processor  and mix until it comes together.
Roll into 40 small balls, place them on a baking sheet, flatten them slightly and top with cashew nuts.
Bake for 15-20 minutes, until pale golden brown.
Cool on a wire rack.



  1. I love rediscovering recipes, and it's wonderful to find that they were worth keeping!

  2. Yum. I love cashew nuts.

  3. They look absolutely delicious!

    I have the Rhubard And Orange Fool recipe I promised you a few days ago. Here it is:

    900g rhubarb
    grated rind of 1 orange
    Half a teaspoon ground ginger
    1 stick cinnamon
    25g butter
    175g caster sugar (according to taste).
    600ml (1 pint) double or whipping cream
    2 tablespoons orange liqueur (optional)
    primroses or other spring flowers to decorate.

    Serves 8-10 (not in our family!)

    Cut the rhubarb into short lengths. put in a large saucepan with orange rind, ginger, cinnamon stick, butter and sugar. Cook over a gentle heat for about five minutes until the rhubarb is softened, thick and pulpy. Remove cinnamon stick and cool completely.

    Whip the cream with the liqueur if using until thick enough to hold its shape. Fold in cold rhubarb pulp very lightly to give a marbled effect. Taste, and add more sugar if necessary. Spoon fool into a deep glas bowl or individual glasses, and chill well before serving. Decorate with flowers.

    VoilĂ ! ;-)
