Our answer

Nigella's Cheese Stars are bite-sized cheese biscuits that are great with cocktails or drinks and would be a perfect nibble for a New Year's Eve party. They are seasoned with celery salt, which is a mixture of salt and ground celery seed. The celery seed adds a slightly savoury edge.

It can be difficult to buy celery seed to make your own celery salt, so we woud suggest just using ¼ teaspoon of salt instead of the celery salt. Alternatively, you may like to try Nigella's Cheesy Feet recipe and cut this dough into star shapes instead.
