    170g Salted Butter, at room temperature

    50g Mature Cheddar Cheese

    25g Parmigiano Cheese

    220g Plain Flour

    50g Ground Almonds

    5g Fresh Chopped Herbs

    Black Pepper

    Extra Herbs, to garnish


    Pre-heat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4.

    Finely grate the cheddar and the Parmigiano cheese. In a bowl, add the flour and the ground almonds, season with some black pepper and mix well. Chop the butter into small chunks and rub into the flour mixture. Add the chopped herbs and the grated cheese and rub in with your fingers until you achieve a soft dough.

    Roll out on a floured surface to the thickness of a pound coin. Cut into shapes with your favourite cutter. Carefully put onto greased baking sheets and cook for 12-15 minutes.

    After baking, decorate with small sprigs of herbs whilst still warm.

    Allow to cool then serve. Delicious on their own or serve with a cheese board.
