A delicious crumbly savory biscuit – great with a cheese platter.

Ingredients (makes 24 )

  • 150 grams Parmesan cheese grated
  • 1 cup Plain flour
  • 125 grams Unsalted Butter
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons freshly cracked black pepper
  • 2 pinches Cayenne pepper


  1. Mix together cheese,flour,black pepper and cayenne pepper in a food processor until it starts to clump together
  2. Turn mixture onto floured board
  3. Form mixture into a log 5 cm in diameter Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour ( can be left at this stage for up to a week )
  4. Pre heat oven to 180 deg. Slice logs into 5mm slices and place onto paper lined oven trays
  5. bake for approx. 15 minutes or until they are turning a light golden brown

Mixture seems very soft before you sit it in the fridge... it firms up nicely after an hour and is easy to cut with a sharp knife
