  • Parmesan Cheese


    1. Prep a baking tray & cover in greaseproof paper.
    2. Put a round former of your choice on the tray & fill with finely grated parmesan
    3. Here is the recipe in full
    4. . Grate the Parmesan finely. (The finest Microplane grater does a good job because it produces thin ribbons, not granules.)
    5. 2. Put a sheet of greaseproof paper (or a silpat sheet, if you have one) over the back of a baking tray (better to put it over the back than inside the tray, as it is easier subsequently to slide the Crisps off if you don't have to negotiate the rim of the tray at the same time).
    6. 3. Using a 2" circular pastry-cutter, place the cutter on top of the greaseproof paper and sprinkle a heaped teaspoon of cheese inside the cutter to make a complete disk; make sure the edge of the disk particularly is well covered. (Do NOT press the cheese down into place - it will melt and collapse delicately into itself as it bakes.)
    7. 4. Move the cutter along, and repeat the process. Continue until the greaseproof paper is covered in cheese disks. Leave a few millimetres between each disk - they don't spread in baking like biscuits do.
    8. 5. Bake at 175C for 8-10 minutes until golden brown. They start to brown when they stop bubbling, so watch them carefully. When golden brown transfer them to a wire rack to cool and crisp. Store in an air-tight container, and try not to eat too many before you have to serve them to your guests!
    9. Enjoy.

The first time you make these, watch them like a hawk after 5 minutes have passed. After 8-10 minutes they will be burned to a crisp (ha ha) in some ovens.
