These savoury biscuits are deliciously cheesy, and are so easy to make. They make a lovely gift. Leave out the rosemary, if you prefer

  • 1 small rosemary sprig, leaves finely chopped
  • 1 large egg yolk


  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/ gas 4. Put the flours in a bowl and rub in the butter until it resembles breadcrumbs. Stir in the cheese and rosemary, then add the yolk and mix in using a fork. When the mix starts to clump together, use your hands to knead to a smooth dough.

  2. Take walnut-sized pieces of dough, roll into balls and place on one or two lined baking trays. Flatten slightly with a fork, then bake for 12-14 mins. Alternatively, roll out between sheets of baking parchment and cut into shapes, then bake as before. Cool on the baking sheet for a few mins before moving to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container for up to a week.

These are very easy to make, and absolutely delicious, but I will roll out the dough next time into proper biscuit shapes as the round ball method means you get very small biscuits! Otherwise, brilliant

These are very easy to make and very tasty But the next time I make them I will make them a little bigger and flatten them more as they dont spread very much.

Great recipe! I used dried rosemary as I didn't have any fresh, but they were lovely, cheesy and crumbly. They kept well for a few days. I will make these again!
