  1. Pre heat fan oven to 200c / none fan 220c.
  2. Grease a 20x20cm square tray.
  3. In a food processor mix self raising flour, salt, and baking liquid until mix together and looks like fine breadcrumbs.
  4. Add the buttermilk and mix until all mixed together well.
  5. Stir in the herbs and grated cheese save some cheese to sprinkle on the top.
  6. Place the mixture onto a floured surface, knead the dough ( if to sticky add more flour ).
  7. When the dough is smooth, roll out and with a round cutter make 16 circles.
  8. Each circle roll with your hand to make little dough balls

  10. Sprinkle remanding cheese on and a light dusting of paprika
  11. Bake in the pre heated oven for around 20-25 minutes until golden brown.

Tips :

  • I forgot to save a lot of cheese for the tops, save more for the tops like half the amount as the cheese topped ones go first!!
  • Serve hot or cold.
  • Great with warm meat pastas such as spaghetti

      Hi Winnie thanks for the comment,its a liquid margarine ( can use butter or margarine instead) I've just found it and love using it,saves time melting butter too 🙂
