Spring Fling 1 - cheese cocktail biscuits

I'm getting my act together at the moment for our Annual big barbeque.  We haven't had one in the past couple of years as I was in hospital year before last and working too much last year but this year, it's-a-happening!

So out my cocktail and canape recipes come out.  I have made a few things for a small gathering this week... Things you can make ahead of time, easy things that don't need you to have an infinite amount of ingredients and apparatus.

So here's the cheese cocktail biscuits. These are beautiful and don't need any dip or accompanyment.  Fantastic with a white semillion or champagne.  The photo doesn't do them justice, they melt in your mouth! 
1 cup plain flour
100 grams cold butter, diced
60grams fresh grated parmesan cheese
60grams grated cheddar cheese
1 tb fresh finely chopped rosemary
1 tb fresh finely chopped chives
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tb sour cream
maldon or non-iodised salt flakes

Chop and grate necessary ingredients

Rub butter into flour until it resembles breadcrumbs

Add cheeses, rosemary, chives, pepper and stir to combine.  Lastly add the cream and then with hands, make into a dough.

Layout some cling film and put the dough out on in a sausage shape

roll and tie at one end, then squish it up and re-roll until it is solid

Refrigerate for 15-20 minutes or, if making later,freeze.

When ready to bake, preheat oven to 180 degrees c and cut cling film open, slice portions and roll into small walnut size balls, press down with a fork and sprinkle salt on top.

That's recipe post 96  - so we're on the final 4 countdown to100.  Tell me what I should cook by next Monday to win - click here for more details!
