There’s nothing more moreish than a cheesy biscuit at a dinner party. Easy to grab off a tray and when dressed up with fig slices, these make the ultimate hors-d’oeuvre. Serve on a cheese board with a selection of soft and hard cheeses, grapes and dried fruit.

Tip:

  • These cheese biscuits will keep in an airtight container for a week.

2 figs, thinly sliced

Rub the butter and cheese into the flour between your fingertips until you have a sandy texture.  Then start squashing it together to make it a ball.
