• 160g plain flour, plus a little extra for dusting
  • 70g unsalted butter, chilled and cut into cubes, plus extra for greasing
  • 60g mature cheddar, grated
  • 1 medium free-range egg, beaten


  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4. Line 2 baking sheets with lengths of baking parchment.

  2. 2

    Tip the flour and butter into a large mixing bowl. Rub the butter into the flour using your fingertips until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add the cheddar and beaten egg and mix together with a wooden spoon until combined.

  3. 3

    Sprinkle a little flour on to a work surface, then roll out the dough. Cut star shapes from the dough using a cutter. Lift them with a spatula on to the baking sheet, leaving a little space between them so they can spread out. Bake for 10-12 minutes until just golden. Remove from the oven and leave to cool on the trays for a couple of minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack.
