which was Amee! Congratulations! Please email me with your address and that lovely little book will be finding its way to you very soon. Now, back to those biscuits…I first saw these on Simon Hopkinson’s television show a few weeks ago and was instantly struck by their simplicity. In just a few minutes and a few pulses of the food processor – the dough is made! My family loves anything cheesy – cheese scones, cheesy pasta or cheese soufflé (although that’s just my parents – I can’t stand it!) so I knew these would go down well. And they definitely did! Whilst I was photographing them we just kept wanting to eat more and more. It is categorically impossible to eat just one of these, I promise. The dough is full of parmesan and cheddar, then sprinkled with more parmesan, plus the dough has a pinch of cayenne pepper. The parmesan gives them a salty edge, the cayenne a touch of heat. The teaspoon of mustard powder that goes into the dough emphasises the flavour and I’m sure the mix would be very adaptable to whatever hard cheeses you have or like. The biscuits get crisp, lacy edges and slightly chewier tops where the cheese topping melts. They also make the house smell divine after their just six minutes of baking. Tempted yet? Here’s the recipe – enjoy!
