      Very nice. The measurements were kinda strange once converted for U.S. so here's what I ended up with: 4oz(1cube) of butter, 6oz(1 1/2 cups) jack cheese, 2oz(2/3 cup) parmesan cheese, and the rest the same except I couldn't help myself...this recipe made me add a 4oz can of diced mild green chilies...and they were so wonderful in it (I also would have had to add a lot of extra water but the chilies made the dough a perfect consistency). I used my pastry blender to cut the butter and flour together and the rest I mixed with a fork. I put the dough in a tupperware in the refrigerator for 2 hours and then scooped out 1 inch balls and baked them at 350F for about 15 minutes. They turned out like little tangy, cheesy biscuits. They were a little greasy though. Thank you for the recipe to play with! Made for Zaar Tag.
