I’ve made these biscuits a lot of times and people always like them. If you prefer you can use kalamata olives instead of green olives. Or stuffed olives, like I did last time.

Ingredients (makes 40 biscuits)

  • 300 grams white spelt flour
  • 150 grams unsalted butter, cut in small cubes
  • 100 grams green olives, chopped
  • 80 grams grated Parmesan cheese
  • salt
  • pepper
  • water


  1. Preheat the oven at 180 degrees.
  2. In a bowl mix together the flour, the butter and the Parmesan. Rub them together using your fingertips, till the mixture looks like breadcrumbs.
  3. Add the olives, some salt and pepper and a couple of tablespoons of water to the bowl.
  4. Fold the dough, eventually add more water, till it holds together nicely in a ball.
  5. Roll out the dough between two pieces of baking paper. Then cut out the biscuits in the form you prefer, using a cookie cutter.
  6. Line a cookie tray with baking paper and place the biscuits on it.
  7. Bake at 180 degrees for 12-13 minutes. The bottom will be nice and brown.
  8. Prepare more biscuits using the dough left and repeat the baking in the oven.
  9. Let them cool down and store them in an airtight container for up to a week.

  • These sound like they would be wonderful in Winter time with bowls of soup for dinner.


  • wow what a different recipe!
    Will be trying these!


  • I prefer eating olives as they are too, maybe stuffed with capsicums. My daughter has always loved olives, since she was very young. I remember people not believing that she would choose olives and cheese over cookies! :-)

    • I know where you’re talking about ! My nephew was like that….2 year old and diving into the bowl with olives ;) My 6 year old foster daughter loves them too, I always put a wee pot with olives in her lunchbox


  • I wonder if this cookie would learn my kids to appreciate olives ! This homemade cookie, together with a nice bottle of wine, would make a nice gift to a friend or neighbour. Am a big fan of olives my self but prefer to eat them just as they are.


  • I have recently become a huge fan of olives. I always thought I didn’t like them so I avoided them. This looks like a delicious way to enjoy olives even more

    • Oh! I love olives, in particular the green ones!


  • A lovely savoury biscuit especially with the olives and parmesan together!
