bake in oven for about 17 mins and cool completely before snacking
送入烤箱烤约 17分钟

Personal notes/温馨小贴士:

– the dough is very easy to work with. as such, i thought it doesn’t need much chilling and started shaping after 15 mins of chilling. in the end..the biscuits kinda lost its shape during baking.. hence, do abide by the chilling time
面团很好操作。也就因此,我就冷藏了 15分钟就开始切片整形~结果在烘焙过程,鱼形完全面目全非。。。所以。。冷藏时间是灰常重要哒

IMG_1979– do take note that it is very important to have finely shredded cheddar cheese. this helps you incorporate into the dough easily (refer to picture above). i overlooked a couple of chunks and left it as it is in the dough.. in the end, i get browned spots on the biscuits… so do take effort to ensure you have no cheddar chunks when preparing the dough

– if you do not have the fish cookie cutter, consider making into rings.. hint: this dough reminds me of Cheezels!
如果木有鱼儿曲奇模,可考虑圈圈形 ~ 这个面团烤出来的味道很像 Cheezels(奇治芝士圈)哦!

    Hi Victoria. Ooo. These look so cute. Do the stay crispy for long.?? Thanks Chloe

    • Sigh … Sadly no Chloe. As much as the flavour explodes and is marvellous, the reason I did not give it a highly recommended remark was its crispness. I tried vacuum packing it but it was slightly softer the next day. Had to toast it a little to bring back its crisp. It\’s a fun snack to make though
