GRANNY’S DAIRY FREE CHEESY BITE
There is nothing more exciting than trying out a new dairy free cheese when it comes on the market. The best way to put it to the test is to make some cheese straws or biscuits to sample its richness when it is blended with other ingredients. Cheese biscuits are great to make with the kids on a rainy day as they love squishing all of the ingredients together, they also go down well at parties and provide the kind of comfort food that toddlers enjoy…lovely, simple party food for children and adults…
