Beyond The Messy Kitchen – Cheddar Cheese and Thyme Biscuits

I always seem to have a glut of thyme in the garden and am always looking different ways to use it up. I love using it in soup and to add a bit of interest to roast chicken or stuffing. But with chutney making season slowly creeping up I thought this recipe for Cheddar Cheese and Thyme Biscuits would come in handy.

They are simple to make and I find they are a great thing to have up your sleeve for when friends call around for drinks. Make a batch of these and buy in some dips, cheeses and other toppings and you have a great evening in store!
