04:26 pm: cheese shortbread recipe
This recipe originally came from [my great-aunt] Aunty Peggy. My mother, ioannab, submitted it to "Food Aid" in 1986 (a cookery book to fundraise for the Ethiopian famine of that time, featuring a mix of recipes from celebrities and members of the public), and it made the cut. We have a copy at home, signed by various including I think Delia and Terry and Bob. Here is the copy of it supplied by ioannab:

4 oz plain flour
3 1/2 oz butter (Flora Buttery works too)
2 oz ground rice
2 oz cheddar cheese (grated fairly fine)
paprika - about 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon
cayenne pepper (optional) - 1 pinch
salt - about 1/6 tsp
1 tblsp sesame seeds (optional)

Put the flour, paprika, cheese and ground rice in a bowl and rub in the butter. Roll out approx 1/2" thick, sprinkle with the sesame seeds and lightly roll again. Cut into fingers and put on a well greased baking sheet.

Bake for approx 15-20 mins at 180C. They do brown very quickly, so take care to check often.

note to self: this doesn't make very much, remember to double quantities in future.
