I recently had the privilege of trying Daelia's Biscuit's for Cheese. The biscuits come in three great flavors - Almond Raisin, Hazelnut Fig, and Pumpkin Seed Rye. They are all-natural, high in fiber, low in sodium - and the perfect pairing to enhance your favorite cheese! All biscuits are twice baked and made in small batches to guarantee the perfect texture. Daelia's Biscuits for Cheese is available in Whole Foods nationwide and various independent cheese shops. They can also be purchased online at www.igourmet.com.
I knew right away I wanted to make a no-bake cheesecake with the Hazelnut Fig Biscuits for Cheese. We also did a cheese pairing with the Pumpkin Seed Rye.
I paired the Pumpkin Seed Rye biscuits with cream cheese and a smear of pumpkin butter for a simple afternoon snack. We all enjoyed the biscuits and thought they made a perfect snack!
