Ingredients

24 portion(s)

Ingredients

  • 150 g parmesan, cut into 2 cm chunks
  • 150 g plain flour
  • 150 g Butter
  • 2 pinches Piment d’Espelette or Cayenne Pepper
  • 2 pinches salt

Recipe's preparation

    Method
  1. 1. Preheat the oven to 220°C. To weigh out the proper amount of Parmesan, place the lid on your Thermomix and press the built-in weighing scales button. Cut off a chunk of Parmesan and weigh it on the lid. Add more chunks until you reach 150g. With the blades running at Speed 8, drop the chunks of Parmesan onto the running blades and quickly put the measuring cup in place. Grate about 8 seconds until fine.

  2. 2. Weigh in the flour and the butter. Add the salt and the Piment d’Espelette or Cayenne Pepper. Mix 10 seconds/Speed 5 or until your ingredients form a rough dough.

  3. 3. Tip out onto a board and form into long rolls about 1 ½ inches in diameter. Cut the rolls into rounds and place on a greased baking sheet or one lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking sheet. Alternatively, chill the dough for 30 minutes and then roll it out to about ¼ inch thick. Cut out with decorative cookie cutters and bake as below.

  4. 4. Bake 7 to 8 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool 5 minutes (if you can wait that long) on a cooling rack and serve with your favourite bubbly.

Tip

If you wish, roll out half the dough, wrap it in cling film and freeze for the next time you want Champagne and nibbles. Then, unwrap and cut the frozen roll into rounds with a knife run under very hot water and bake straight away. They’ll be really nice and crispy.

  • Well thanks, Ros, how sweet

    Well thanks, Ros, how sweet of you! This is actually the first recipe I published on my blog and I have been making these gorgeous little babies ever since. Unexpected friends pop in for a drink? Going on a picnic or need a hostess gift? Whip them up in a jiffy in your Thermomix and enjoy. Roll about half the batter in some clingfilm or baking paper and pop it into the freezer for another day. Delicious!

  • LOL is right, Monica! There

    Submitted by Madame Thermomix on 27. July 2015 - 21:03.

    LOL is right, Monica! There are rarely any of these delicious Parmesan shortbread biscuits left over, especially if you only bake half the dough at a time (and freeze the rest as in my notes). For those rare occasions when there are a few bikkies left over, yes I would bung them into a zipped bag or an airtight container, just like you'd do with sweet biscuits. 

     

    And thanks for reminding me, I need to make a new batch for the freezer. It's summer holidays here in France and friends keep popping over  tmrc_emoticons.;-) 

     

    Happy Thermomix cooking!
