Serves 10

These little treats are addictive! Although they are called biscuits, they are somewhere between a cookie and a biscuit. A great alternative to crackers or a loaf of bread.

Ingredients

  • 31⁄2 oz cold unsalted butter, cut into chunks

  • 31⁄2 oz plain flour, plus extra for flouring

  • 4 oz grated Parmesan-Reggiano cheese

  • 1 beaten egg

  • 1⁄4 teaspoon fine pink Himalayan salt

  • 1⁄2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • Rosemary sprig, to decorate

Instructions

  1. Mix the butter, flour, and parmesan together. Season with salt & pepper and knead until you form a dough.

  2. Divide the dough in two, and roll each part into a uniform cylinder, about 3cm / 11⁄4 inches in diameter.

  3. Wrap the 2 cylinders into plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 mins. You can also freeze them and use another time.

  4. Preheat the oven to 350°F, meanwhile cut each cylinder into rounds that are a 1 cm think (between 1⁄4” & 1⁄2” think).

  5. Arrange the biscuits on a baking sheet lined with baking parchment.

  6. Brush the surface of each biscuit with the egg and sprinkle over a little finely grated parmesan.

  7. Bake for 10 minutes, or until they are a gorgeous golden-brown color.

  8. Allow to cool (if you can) and serve.
