I like Fennel, but my husband is not that keen on it, so I made a small batch of Fennel biscuits. If you want more biscuits, double the ingredients. I used hard cheese that is vegetarian, but if you don’t want to make vegetarian biscuits, you can use Parmesan cheese instead.
Ingredients for 12 biscuits:
– 100g white plain flour
– 100g butter at room temperature
– 50g semolina
– 1 tsp of fennel seeds
– 20g vegetarian hard cheese, grated
Preheat the oven at 180C or 160C fan.
Put all the ingredients in a food processor and mix until the mixture starts to resemble bread crumbs. Stop and tip the mixture onto the floured worktop. Knead the dough slightly. Make 12 balls and press them flat with the fingers. Put them on a baking parchment.
Using a small fork, make indents in the biscuits. Put the tray in the oven and leave them to bake for 12 minutes. Get the tray out and put the grated cheese on top. Put them back in the oven and bake for another 3 minutes.
When they are cooked, take them out. Transfer the biscuits on a cooling rack and leave them to cool.
