Recipe Method
1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas Mark 4. 2. Rub the butter into the flour, by hand or in a food processor, until the mixture looks like fine breadcrumbs. 3. Stir in the freshly grated parmesan (vegetarian alternative), seasoning and cayenne pepper. 4. Work the mixture together into a ball and then knead briefly on a work surface lightly dusted with flour until smooth. 5. Cut the dough in half, flatten each piece slightly, then roll out thinly between 2 large sheets of cling film. 6. Lift off the top piece of cling film and cut into 5cm/2in biscuits. 7. Carefully lift them onto a lightly buttered baking sheet, then knead together and re-roll the trimmings to make more biscuits. You should make about 30 biscuits in total. 8. Bake the biscuits for 8-10 minutes until crisp and golden. Leave to cool on the baking sheets. 9. Store in an airtight tin.
