This time around is a very simple challenge for the KBB, our host Regina and Swi picked this recipe from Vogue Australia: Wine and Food Cookbook, and they suggested to let members who have children, to let their children help out. I asked my son to help out rolling the dough in sesame seeds.
So, no fancy shmancy techniques, but the result are crunchy biscuits, combo of cheesy bites (I used Grana Padano) and spicy chayenne pepper. I made two batches, one plain and one with sesame seeds.
- 225g grated mature cheese
- 125g butter
- 125g flour
- cayenne pepper to taste
- sesame seeds
With finger tips, mix together cheese, butter, flour and cayenne pepper until mixture forms a mass. Butter a biscuit tray. Make small balls of the dough. Roll some in sesame seeds and press on tray, placing them fairly far apart as they will spread while cooking. (We have pressed walnuts on some of the biscuits and, for a colour contrast, some chopped pistachio nuts). Bake biscuits in pre-heated oven 180’C for 15 minutes. Store in an airtight container.
