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.
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!
