Cheese Crinkles

I guess you have tried the Classic Chocolate Crinkles, but have you tried Cheese Crinkles? These are crinkles made with cheese. Yes, you heard that right. Cheese in crinkles? That sounds insane, but it is actually good! If you like sweet and salty bursting in your mouth, this is the recipe for you. I hope you could try it.

I know by now you have tried Chocolate Crinkles, Ube Crinkles and Red Velvet Crinkles. I recommend you try them. They are sweet and delicious. There are so many flavors to enjoy. Some make their crinkles with cream cheese filling. But how about Cheese Crinkles? Does this sound good to you? Yes, that chewy, salty and sweet in one cookie is really amazing. It bursts in your mouth like heaven. Did I need to say more?

How to Make Cheese Crinkles?

Cream butter and sugar in a large bowl, about 2 minutes. Add eggs and continue mixing until the batter turns light and fluffy. Put the cheese and vanilla extract in the batter and mix well. Sift all-purpose flour and baking powder and add to the batter. Using a wooden spoon, mix it until well combined. Cover the bowl with a cling wrap and chill it in the fridge for at least 2 hours. Once chilled, use an ice cream scoop to get the exact amount of batter each time. Mold it into a ball with the palm of your hand. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Coat each dough ball in icing sugar. Lay the dough balls onto a baking sheet, making sure they are spaces in between them. Bake the balls in a preheated oven for 10 minutes. Let it cool before serving.

NOTES:

  • Use unsalted butter in this recipe, as the cheese is salty itself.
  • I suggest you use good quality cheese, for this one I use cheddar.
  • For even cookie result, use ice cream scoop to get the dough. Roll each dough in the palm of your hands until they are nice and round.
  • My other tip is to put the dough balls back in the fridge and chill for 10 minutes (while the oven is preheating) before baking them.
  • Make sure that the oven temperature is correct. Check the cookie after 10 minutes. Sometimes the key to a beautiful crack Cheese Crinkles is the temperature of the oven, how chilled the dough is and the time of baking.

Cheese Scones

My kitchen smells like your typical bakery in the neighbourhood, those Cheese Scones are so good! American Scones (sounds like “cone”) or British Scones (pronounce as “skon”) whichever how you say it… they are both yummy, and that’s what’s important.

Today, I was busy in the kitchen making this and that. My kids were like ” Wow! You’re so bored Mum!” I probably was. By the way, these Cheese Scones are very popular British biscuit. I hope you could taste them. It is nice to be eaten with butter and jam or cheese.


Cheese Scones Recipe

INGREDIENTS:

2 cups of flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

3 teaspoons baking powder

50 grams (1/4 cup) butter, cut into tiny cubes

1 cup (100 grams) grated cheddar cheese

1 cup milk

How to Make Cheese Scones?

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Preheat the oven to 220 degrees C (425 degrees F).
  2. Using the sieve, sift the flour and salt into a mixing bowl. Rub in the cubed butter until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  3. Next, add in the baking powder and half of the cheese (the other half will be used to sprinkle later).
  4. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients, add milk then mix it quickly with a knife (or with your hands if you don’t mind) to form a soft dough.
  5. Lightly floured board, table or kitchen counter, tip the dough and pat or roll into a rectangle. Cut into your desired shapes (I used a round cookie cutter for this recipe) and sprinkle them with the remaining cheese.
  6. Place on a baking tray and cook for 12-15 minutes until the colour turns rich gold.

Serve and enjoy these Cheese Scones with family and friends!
