Cheese Cookies

This recipe requires a full-sized food processor, so if you only have a tiny one, cut the recipe in half.

Ingredients

225 g processed cheese slices, such as Dairylea
225 g mature Cheddar cheese
110 g butter
110 g soya powder
About 70 pecan or walnut halves (optional)


Method

1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/Gas Mark 6.


2. Cut the cheeses and butter into chunks. Put the cheeses, butter and soya powder in the food processor and pulse until the dough is well combined.


3. Mist a baking tray with spray-on cooking oil. Drop spoonfuls of dough on to the tray and, if using, press half a pecan or walnut in the top of each one.


4. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until the cookies are just getting brown around the edges.

Yield:- This will depend on how big you make your cookies, small and get about 70, each with 1 gram of carbohydrate, a trace of fibre and 2 grams of protein.
