    French Tart's Note:

    These delicious crisp and light little savoury biscuits/crackers are a firm favourite in our family, especially when served with the cheese board! They are also great served with soups, dips, & salads. I have used pecans instead of walnuts in the past with the same tasty results. You can omit the chilli or cayenne pepper if you are not keen on the spicy "kick" it gives! They are very nice at Christmas time if you cut them into star shapes & serve them as aperitif snacks, or with cocktails.

      I just made a double batch of these - absolutely delicious!! I did use half cheddar cheese, and half parmesan, so it was extremely flavourful. I also used half cayenne and half dry mustard powder and also added some dried rosemary. Putting the logs into the freezer for 10 minutes after refridgerating helps it keep its shape. A note to any novice cooks - it is easiest to mix in the milk using a knife, and also to squash and shape the logs roughly before rolling smooth, as this helps get the air out of the mix (and stops it collapsing in spots). Leave a little room to spread too! I will be making these again soon - I think pistachios could go well in them too..

      Tasty little bites of heaven. I shaped mine into a log and did slices instead of rolling and cutting and added maybe 1-2 tablespoons more of milk. I also used a chipotle chili powder and once cooked a smidge of fleur de sel on top. I just smeared a bit of butter on top. They were quick to toss together. Made for PAC Spring 2009 Definite keeper and going in my Faves CB 2009

      Delicious! easy to make. I also rolled the dough into a log, popped it in the fridge for half an hour and cut into slices then cooked them. I am going to serve these with a cheese board along with a nice glass of wine!
