  • ¼ cup cream
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • A pinch of black pepper
  • A pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 1½ cups flour
  • 1½ cups grated parmesan
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh basil, rosemary or thyme


  • Preheat oven to 180°C (160°C fan bake).
  • Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
  • Cream together the cheese, butter, cream, milk, garlic salt, pepper and cayenne.
  • Beat in the flour, parmesan and herbs a little at a time until just combined.
  • Halve the dough and roll out one half on a lightly floured surface.
  • Cut into about 18 biscuits with a small cutter and place the biscuits on one of the prepared trays.
  • Repeat with the remaining dough.
