Cooky's parmesan biscuits


  • Preheat oven to 180°C fan forced (200°C normal).
  • Process the butter with 100 gm flour, the grated cheeses, cayenne, salt and mustard powder until it is ‘clumpy’. Then process in short bursts until it starts to come together.
  • Knead the dough on a lightly floured workbench until well mixed and smooth. Then roll out to about 2 mm thickness and cut into rounds.
  • Lightly oil a large oven tray and carefully place the pastry rounds on top, leaving space between each one. Brush the tops with the beaten egg and cook in the oven for about 8 mins until golden.
