Biscotti alla Parmigiana

Cook Time: 10 min
Level: Easy
Yield: 26 savory cookies


* 1 cup all-purpose flour
* 1 cup softened unsalted butter
* 1 cup freshly grated Parmesan
* 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary leaves
* Pinch sea salt


In a bowl of a food processor add flour, butter, Parmesan cheese,
rosemary and salt. Pulse until crumbly, but sticks together when
pressed with fingers. Pour onto a floured pastry board and gather into
a ball. Cover it with plastic wrap and allow dough to rest in
refrigerator for 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Remove dough from the refrigerator and allow it to warm slightly,
about 10 minutes. Place rested dough on a lightly floured pastry board
and roll out to 1/2-inch thickness. Line a baking sheet with a silpat
mat or parchment paper. Using a 2-inch cookie cutter, cut out circles
and place them on the baking sheet, 1-inch apart. Gather dough scraps
into a ball. Roll out leftover dough and cut additional circles.
Continue until all the dough is used. If the dough becomes too soft
and the butter starts to melt, place it back into the refrigerator to
firm up again.

Place in oven and bake 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown.
