I like a simple recipe. In fact, the simpler the better.
So I like this recipe. It’s three basic ingredients, with optional herbs and pepper: flour, grated cheese, butter. Rub the butter into the cheese and flour until it’s a good pastry-texture dough. Chill for about an hour before rolling out and baking at 180C for 10-15 minutes.
Ratios: 150g flour, to 120g butter, and 130g cheese – some variety of Italian hard cheese is best, but I’ve used cheddar with success before.
Try not to eat them all at once…
