One Bite Biscuits

Ingredients (50-60 cookies)

  • 220g/ 7.8oz butter, room temperature
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg white (the yolk will be used for spreads)
  • 60 ml/ 2 floz milk
  • 430g/ 15.2oz flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp dried ginger
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 250g/ 8.8oz grated cheese (parmesan or gruyere)
  • 1 egg yolk
  • sesame seeds, poppy seeds white and black
In a bowl add the flour, ginger and baking powder sifted. Add all remaining ingredients:
Butter, cheese, egg, some salt, and egg white. Keep the yolk and other seeds for later.
Join all the ingredients and knead adding slowly the milk to have a pliable and soft dough.
Gather the dough into a ball.
Take a small amount at a time and roll out the dough with a rolling pin, on a floured surface or (even better) on a silicon surface.
Roll out the dough to a thickness of 0.5-0.7 cm/ 0.2"-0.3".
With biscuit cutters or a shot-glass, cut shapes out from dough.
Lift up the dough and shapes stay on the table.
Add the leftover dough to the main dough ball. At the end, use the leftover dough to make lace cookies.
In a shallow baking pan spread a baking sheet and place the biscuits, at some distance from each other.
Beat the egg yolk with some milk and spread on the biscuits with a pastry brush. Sprinkle with seeds.
Bake in preheated oven at 180°C/ 360°F/ Gas 4 for ~15′ or until golden and cooked underneath.

☛ Cooking time depends on the size and thickness of cookies.
☛ Towards the end of the time check if cooked, inverting one or two. They should be browned at the bottom.
I used 2 pans. It depends depends on the pan size. Mine were tiny.
It's a fun process, that you will enjoy.
