Paprika and sesame parmesan nibbles.


Paprika and sesame nibbles.

Remember the old Rich Tea biscuit advert that suggested a cup of tea was too wet without a biscuit to dunk? The same goes for a cold glass of wine or a beer, especially over a bank holiday weekend.

I can’t really suggest you have a rich tea with your beer or wine on the patio but a few of these paprika and sesame parmesan nibbles should hit the spot. Parmesan adds a deep umami richness that compliments a crisp white wine or a cold beer. If you don’t like paprika or can’t eat sesame seeds then, as they are simply a coating to the uncooked dough, leave them out.

150g soft butter

150g finely grated parmesan cheese (or a similar hard cheese)

How to ……

  • Place the butter, flour, cheese and egg into a large mixing bowl. Use your hands to bring the dough together.
  • Divide the dough into two equal portions. Roll into a sausage shape about 2″ in diameter. Roll one sausage in paprika and one in sesame seeds.

Dough ready to chill.

  • Wrap in cling film and chill for 30 minutes.
