I am on the plane to London, but we are stuck at the gate. We were actually racing down the runway when the plane abruptly stopped. Apparently, the computer radar was alerting the pilots to weather problems that weren't. So, as I wait for the technicians to fix things, I figured I'd blog from my blackberry.
A couple of weekends ago, Dylan's friend Ruby and her mom Michelle came over for a playdate. Dylan had been well-behaved the week prior, so I wanted to reward her with some baking. She loves her Pink Princess Cookbook (by Barbara Beery) and picked out the cheesy biscuit recipe. In the book, these are shaped like flowers, but we used our Halloween cookie cutters. They looked great, especially since they were bright orange from the cheese.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a big bowl, combine a very soft stick of butter, 2 cups of heated cheddar cheese, and a tablespoon of worcestershire sauce or soy sauce. Once this is well blended, add one cup of flour, a dash of salt and a pinch of cayenne if you like. Roll out and use cookie cutters to form any shapes you want. Place biscuits on a nonstick cookie sheet and bake for 10 to 12 minutes.
