Lady Magnon's Amazing Parmesan Biscuits.



Every person who's been lucky enough to taste some of these, always asks for the recipe. Lady M did exactly that when we first encountered them at artist Simon Fletcher's house; his wife Julie is a superb cook. I suppose I really ought to call them 'Julie's Amazing Parmesan Biscuits'.

I think Lady M's ingredients are as follows: 100gms each of butter, flour, and freshly grated parmesan (don't skimp on quality), and an egg yolk; plus some chilli powder (quarter tsp) and a few cumin seeds (1 tsp). 

Wizz up to form a ball, refrigerate for a while, then roll out and cut into small biscuit shapes. Don't over bake (about 10 mins; keep watching).

Other than the first four ingredients the rest is according to taste. Don't add salt.

The biscuits are delicate, simple to make, slightly spicy, and totally delicious; perfect to offer to guests with a glass of rouge.

    1. The parmesan has to be good, one can't use ready grated packet cheese; it just doesn't work. Good luck.

    1. It's a great recipe to have under one's belt. Lady M can knock-up a bunch in no time, if people turn up unexpectedly.

  7. Ha-ha, love Snowy. I dare not make these lovely biscuits because I would just polish the lot off in one go.

  10. I wonder if I can adapt this recipe to gluten-free flour? Might give it a go. They sound delicious and I am so sick of rice crackers.

    Love the tin tin tin!

  12. You don't mention oven temperature.
    However, I shall pick an average biscuit temperature and make some.
    Much more fun than worrying about the Stuff on the news. If the terrorists are coming I doubt there's owt I can do to stop them, so I might as well bake something.

  14. These sound delicious! I'm sure Himself will be happy if I made these, and as someone else already said, they'd likely be eaten all in one go.

  15. I actually made these last week and they are indeed delicious. My son took them to work to rave reviews all around. Thanks to Lady Magnon from Vancouver.
