Parmesan biscuits

A savoury biscuit is just the thing for a drinks and nibbles party, and these are really easy to whip up. Who needs more of an excuse?

Ingredients

Preparation method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.

  2. Rub the butter into the flour, by hand or in a food processor, until the mixture looks like fine breadcrumbs.

  3. Stir in the parmesan, seasoning and cayenne pepper.

  4. Work the mixture together into a ball and then knead briefly on a work surface lightly dusted with flour until smooth.

  5. Cut the dough in half, flatten each piece slightly, then roll out thinly between 2 large sheets of cling film.

  6. Lift off the top piece of cling film and cut into 5cm/2in biscuits.

  7. Carefully lift them onto a lightly buttered baking sheet, then knead together and re-roll the trimmings to make more biscuits. You should make about 30 biscuits in total.

  8. Bake the biscuits for 8-10 minutes until crisp and golden. Leave to cool on the baking sheets. Store in an airtight tin.
