These moreish biscuits are great for a savoury snack, especially paired with cheese.


Parmesan and walnut shortbread

  • 1 1/4 cups plain flour
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper
  • 175 g chilled butter, chopped
  • 1 cup freshly grated parmesan
  • 3/4 cup walnut pieces, lightly toasted
  • 1/3 cup walnut pieces, untoasted


Parmesan and walnut shortbread

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C (160°C fan-forced). Line 2 baking trays with baking paper. Process flour, cayenne and butter in a food processor until fine crumbs form. Add parmesan; process until just combined. Add toasted walnut and 1 tablespoon iced water; process until mixture comes together. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface; bring together to form a smooth ball.
  2. Roll dough between sheets of baking paper until 1cm thick. Using a 4cm round cookie cutter, cut dough into 35 rounds. Reroll any dough off-cuts. Press an extra walnut piece into each round.
  3. Transfer rounds to prepared trays. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden, swapping trays halfway through cooking. Cool on trays. Serve.
