I've tried to find the recipe online to link to (lazily) but can't so here are the ingredients -
125g plain flour (we used Dove's Farm gluten free)
Good pinch of cayenne pepper
1 tsp light brown sugar
100g unsalted butter, chilled and cubed
25g freshly grated Parmesan cheese
100g crumbled Blue Stilton cheese
3 Tbsp black onion (nigella) seeds, sesame seeds
The Blue Stilton was crumbled into small bits and then the cheeses were also added to the pot and blitzed til the mix started to come together as a dough.
Once fully chilled, the dough was sliced into rings (about 4mm thick). We got 13 biscuits from each. These were placed on a non-stick baking sheet and baked in a 160ºC fan oven for 12-15 minutes.
Beware! These biscuits are very moreish and may not make it to a storage box... however, they can be stored in an airtight container for 3 days or frozen.
Sous Chef J's verdict is "they're nice, crumbly and there's a hidden bite". Well said!
