- 1 cup rolled oats
- 75g unsalted butter
- 1 cup boiling water
- 3/4 cup polenta
- 1 tablespoon caster sugar
- 1 tablespoon powered chicken stock
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 egg, beaten
- 2 and 1/2 cups of plain flour
Method:Preheat the oven to 180°C and lightly grease four cookie trays. In a large bowl add the rolled oats, butter and the cup of boiling water. Allow the mixture to stand for 10 minutes.
Then add the polenta, sugar, powered chicken stock, milk, cheese and egg and mix well. After the mixture is combined add the flour in one cup at a time. Knead lightly until it forms a soft dough.
Roll the dough to a 5mm thickness on a floured surface and cut with your favourite cookie cutter shapes. Space the shapes evenly on a cookie sheet and bake for 35 minutes or until golden brown. Allow them to cool before storing them in an airtight container. At this point, you might want to give a few to your faithful friend as they probably at your feet drooling over the cheesy aroma.
