Parmesan biscuits recipe

Recipe: Parmesan bites (match with Spanish Cava)


Fizz and nibbles – bliss for a dinner party or day in the sun.

Recreate special holiday memories with these ludicrously easy cheesey bites and a popped bottle or two or refreshing cava.

We recommend this wonderful Paco Molina Brut, a perfect partner at under £10 a bottle! 

TIP: For flavour variation, replace cayenne pepper with smoked paprika, dried thyme or mild chilli powder.

 Parmesan biscuits recipe

INGREDIENTS (20-30 bites)

125g plain flour

125g cubed unsalted butter

25g freshly grated parmesan

Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 x pinch cayenne pepper


  1. Pre-heat oven to 180.
  2. Rub butter into flour or use a food processor until mixture looks like breadcrumbs.
  3. Mix in remaining ingredients.
  4. Form together into a ball, then knead on a lightly floured surface for a few minutes until dough is smooth.
  5. Cut dough in half (to allow for rolled out surface area) then roll out first piece between two pieces of cling film to 0.5cm thickness.
  6. Remove top piece of cling film, cut out as many 5cm round biscuits as you can and place on a greased baking tray.
  7. Repeat with second piece of dough and any trimmings.
  8. Bake for 8-10 minutes until golden, then cool on a wire rack. 

Serve alongside something sparkling like Paco Molina Cava Brut but make sure you've got plenty of both for everyone!
