During the weekend I had some friends over for dinner and to the pre-dinner drink I’ve made some little nibbles.

One of the things I made were Parmesan drink-cookies. At least that is what I call them. Sometimes I think it is hard to differentiate between a cookie and a cracker! Normally I would say that cookies are sweet and crackers are salty or savoury. But these have the consistency of a cookie but they are salty! So yes I call them drink-cookies.

Parmesan cookies

Parmesan cookies

They are quite easy to make.

100 gram of room temperature butter
200 ml fine grated Parmesan (you need to grate it yourself and not use the pre-grated stuff from the grocery store)
200 mL of all purpose wheat flour
2-3 Tbsp of milk or cream (what ever you have at home)

  • Mix butter, cheese and flour with your hands or in a food processor.
  • Add milk/cream 1 tablespoon at a time to make a dough that holds together.
  • Sprinkle a little flour on your kitchen counter top, and roll the dough into a roll that is about 1 inch (25-30 mm) thick
  • Place on a plate or cutting board, cover with plastic film and let it rest in the fridge for minimum 15 min
  • Cut the roll into 10 mm thick slices
  • Place slices on a greased cookie sheet or a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper
  • Bake in 200 degrees C (400 F) for 8-12 minutes depending on oven
  • Watch carefully as they can go very quickly from almost done to burned
  • Transfer to a cooling rack and serve to drinks!

Remember Life is too short to not eat and drink well!
