Cheese Savouries 2These cheese savouries make a great party canape. This is another great recipe from my friend Heiko. As you might have noticed I have been making quite a lot of sweet treats lately. This is a low/no sugar option. However it is is certainly not a low calorie choice. The key thing when making these cheese savouries is to use a tasty cheese. I used half gruyere and half mature cheddar. Another great choice would be Old Amsterdam, a mature gouda.

You will need some patience to make these savouries, it takes along time to cut them out. I tried to make a different flavour for each shape some suggestions are:

  • simply leave them plain
  • caraway seeds /kummel
  • chopped fresh Rosemary
  • paprika
  • sesame seeds
  • chopped fresh chives
  • my personal favourite a brush of German sweet mustard
  • freshly ground black pepper

For any topping that involves seeds first brush the biscuit with  a beaten egg yolk and then sprinkle with seeds.

If you have any other ideas for some great flavours let me know. Some of these Cheese Savouries went into work and the favourite flavour was probably the sweet mustard.
