Savoury Cheddar Biscuits

Cookies don’t have to be served as a dessert or with coffee or tea all the time! They can also be a nice appetizer or a tasty snack.  I am sharing with you a taste bud tickling recipe for a savory cookie this week.  Serve it as it is or with a spread or dip.  Bake it for a party and pair it with wine or beer.  Enjoy a no-sugar cookie!
