Cheddar is beddar! These Savory Cheddar Biscotti taste great. They are better served with a hot bowl of soup than with coffee or wine.
Cheddar, a very popular cheese originated in the village of Cheddar, England. It is now produce worldwide with each region having it own unique character. One of the most widely purchased and eaten cheese in the world it is always made from cow's milk.
It is a hard and natural cheese that has a slightly crumbly texture if properly cured, or if young, the texture is smooth. It gets a sharper taste as it matures, over a period of time between 9 to 24 months, with sharpness becomes noticeable at 12 months (old cheddar).
At 18 (extra old cheddar) months the sharpness becomes very distinct. Premium sharp cheddars have been age 5-6 years and can be quite expensive. However, for most uses three-year-old cheese is fine and five-year-old cheddar can be saved for really special occasions.
In some European countries, like Italy cheddar is hard to find. You could really make these Savory Cheddar Biscotti with any semi-hard cheese. But, harder cheeses like parmesan but I might be to firm for this use.
