Little Gold Men

mmmmm – I can’t believe it has taken me *so* long to get round to making these!

They were really easy to make, DD1 (3.11) loved rolling out the dough & cutting the little men out, DD2 (1.5) enjoyed playing with some flour & everyone enjoyed eating the end result – DH requested we make more after his first bite!




100g Grated vegetarian extra mature cheddar
50g Unsalted organic butter
80g Plain flour
1/2 tsp mild, sweet paprika (I used 1/4 tsp regular paprika)
1 tbsp cold water


  1. Preheat your oven to 180oC / 350F
  2. Using a food processor, mix the cheese, butter, flour and paprika together.  Add enough cold water to make into a dough (I only needed 2 tsp).
  3. Turn out onto a clean work surface and kneed lightly.
  4. Roll out to 1-2mm thickness and cut out what shapes you fancy.  We decided to stick with mamacook‘s Little golden men!
  5. Bake on non stick baking paper for 10 mins or until lightly browned.  You want to catch these at the golden rather than dark brown stage.
  6. Put onto a cooling rack to cool down.


These apparently cook well from frozen in around 10-12 mins, so will have to make a big batch of the dough next time to try this out!
