Woman's Weekly recipe Nothing shows you care quite like homemade gifts. These Parmesan biscuits are easy to make and a great gift for any occasion, especially during Christmas. They're full of cheesy flavour and have a crunchy bite to them

Ingredients

  • 100g plain flour
  • 100g unsalted butter
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 100g Parmesan, finely grated
  • 1 med egg, beaten, for glaze
  • 1tbsp poppy seeds
  • 1tbsp sesame seeds
  • 2 baking sheets, lined with baking parchment

Finely chopped nuts can be used instead of seeds

Method

  1. Set the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4. Tip the flour, butter, salt and cayenne pepper into a food processor and add most of the Parmesan. Whizz until the ingredients just bind together — if the dough feels very soft, wrap it in a freezer bag and chill in the fridge until it’s firm enough to handle.
  2. Roll the dough out thinly, cut it into 3 x 7cm (1¼ x 2¾in) rectangles and put them on baking sheets. Chill for 10 mins before cooking.
  3. Brush with egg glaze and sprinkle seeds over one half of each biscuit, using poppy seeds on about half of the biscuits and sesame seeds on the rest.
  4. Bake the biscuits for 10-15 mins, until they’re lightly golden, swapping around the trays in the oven if necessary.
  5. Remove the biscuits from the oven and leave them to cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes, then transfer them to wire racks to cool completely. They’ll keep for up to a week in an airtight container.
