Yummy Biscuits from Rick Stein and the BBC website

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. Rub the butter into the flour, by hand or in a food processor, until the mixture looks like fine breadcrumbs.
  3. Stir in the parmesan, seasoning and cayenne pepper.
  4. Work the mixture together into a ball and then knead briefly on a work surface lightly dusted with flour until smooth.
  5. Cut the dough in half, flatten each piece slightly, then roll out thinly between 2 large sheets of Saran.
  6. Lift off the top piece of Saran and cut into 2in biscuits.
  7. Carefully lift them onto a lightly buttered baking sheet, then knead together and re-roll the trimmings to make more biscuits. You should make about 30 biscuits in total.
  8. Bake the biscuits for 8-10 minutes until crisp and golden. Leave to cool on the baking sheets. Store in an airtight container.

Absolutely delish!! Made for teachers at my son's school - I had barely left when I received a call to order some. I would have rated it higher . . . .

These are very different from 'biscuits' I'm used to, but that doesn't detract from their great taste & the fact that they go well with soup (Served with a homemade bean soup) or just as a tasty snack! A keeper of a recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick-A-Chef]
