(I know, I know, it’s radishes again… but I didn’t want to be selfish and not share this lovely recipe!)
Some of the radishes I bought from the farmers’ market the other day were still lying around in my refrigerator and I was wondering what to do with them. I went through my recipe stash and found just the right thing – cheesy Parmesan cookies topped with radish butter.
I baked a batch of these this weekend. They looked so pretty and tasted just as good – one bite and I was in food heaven…
Parmesan cookies with radish butter
These biscuits are good on their own but the radish butter adds some pizazz to them – they also make great canapés.
Makes 60 bite-sized cookies
125 g butter, chilled
50 g Gruyère cheese, grated
50 g Parmesan cheese, grated
120 g plain flour
A pinch of salt
For the radish butter
250 g salted butter
12 red radishes, finely chopped
Preheat oven to 180°C. Place butter, cheeses, flour and salt in a food processor and process until just combined. Roll dough into a ball, wrap in cling film and chill for 30 minutes.
Break off small pieces of dough and roll into balls. Place on baking tray and press down with a fork. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool and store in an airtight container.
To prepare the radish butter, soften butter and mix in the chopped radish. When ready to serve, spread radish butter over cookies and serve immediately.
