These Red Wine Biscuits are the perfect delivery vehicle for Pistachio and Chive Goat Cheese Spread but they’d be a welcome addition to any cheese tray. You could even pair them with a rich stew like beef bourguignon and crisp green salad.
I love their peppery kick and they’re a great way to use up that wee bit of wine left in the bottle on your counter. Read on for the recipe.
Red Wine Biscuits
Move over crackers, these are the perfect addition to any cheese board.
- Prep Time: 10 minutes
- Cook Time: 20 minutes
- Total Time: 30 minutes
- Yield: 18 to 24 biscuits 1x
- Category: Appetizer
- Method: Baking
- Cuisine: Canadian
- 2½ cups unbleached all purpose flour
- ⅓ cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1½ teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
- 1½ teaspoons baking powder
- ½ cup red wine
- ½ cup soft butter
- Preheat the oven to 350℉ and place parchment paper on 2 baking sheets.
- Measure the flour, sugar, salt, pepper and baking powder in a bowl and stir to mix well.
- Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and stir in the wine and butter. Tip: Once the dough starts to come together, use your hands to make sure the butter has penetrated the dough and bring it together in a ball.
- Transfer the dough to a well-floured work surface and pat it into a rectangle.
- Use a rolling pin to roll the dough, keeping the rectangle shape, to a half-inch thickness.
- Cut the dough with a cookie cutter. Tip: You should get 18 – 24 biscuits depending on the size of your cookie cutter. If you don’t have a cookie cutter, just use a sharp knife to cut the dough equally.
- Place the biscuits on parchment paper on baking trays and bake them for about 20 minutes. Tip: They’ll be a little brown on the bottom and a little pink throughout because of the red wine.
- Enjoy as an appetizer with Pistachio and Chive Goat Cheese Spread or your favourite cheeses.
