Last year I was invited for dinner by my dear friend Sarah. Sarah is Danish and she is a great cook, she can mix dishes from different cuisines in one meal finding a perfect balance. As an ‘aperitivo’ Sarah made delicious savoury cookies using, as the main ingredient, one of the most popular foods in Italy: parmesan. I asked her for the recipe, which ‘rested’ in my recipe collection book for about a year. A few days ago, I was thinking about that enjoyable dinner and I decided I just had to bake these yummy parmesan cookies, made with just three ingredients (plus a pinch of salt and pepper if you like).
- 250 g parmesan cheese
- 250 g plain flour
- 250 g butter at room temperature
- salt and pepper
Grate the parmesan and mix together all the ingredients: cheese, butter and flour. Add a pinch of salt and pepper for a stronger flavour. Use your hands to knead the dough, until soft.
Make a roll shape and wrap it with baking paper as shown in the pictures above. Leave it in the fridge for about two hours or even longer. After the resting time, using a sharp knife cut the roll into thin slices and bake for about 10 minutes at 200 C.

This is the perfect food for an aperitif, so it’s great with Prosecco, especially because the flavour of the ‘parmigiano’ is so well-balanced by the sparkling wine. Follow this link to learn more about this popular world-famous sparkling wine:
I recommend to drink it very cold and immediately after opening the bottle!
