Montgomery's Cheese Crackers


  • 225g self-raising flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 75g margarine
  • 5 tsp water
  • 110g finely grated or crumbled Montgomery’s Cheddar 

How to make it

Liven up your cheeseboard this Christmas with your own moreish, savoury crackers using Montgomery’s Cheddar – a world-class, hand-made Cheddar with a distinctive flavour.

  • Preheat oven to 180°C (gas mark 5)
  • Mix the flour and salt in a large bowl, then using your hands mix in the margarine until it becomes a pliable dough – using the water as necessary until it becomes doughy
  • Leave to rest for 5 minutes
  • Roll out on to a floured worktop, so it becomes three times as long as it is wide
  • Sprinkle 20g of Montgomery on the bottom two-thirds of pastry and then fold the top third down
  • Fold again and turn once to the left
  • Roll out and sprinkle another 20g of cheese as before, then fold and turn repeatedly until you use all the cheese
  • Divide the dough into two pieces, roll out thinly – approx 3mm
  • Prick well all over with fork
  • Cut into squares about 30cms width
  • Using the fork, crimp the very edges of the biscuits all around
  • Place on a very lightly greased baking tray, and place in oven for approx 15 mins
  • Cool to serve
