Step by step recipe

Stage 1 - 1 min.
Cashew-nut and Parmesan biscuits
Put 80 g cashew nuts into a blender goblet.

Stage 2 - 1 min.
Cashew-nut and Parmesan biscuits
Blend to a fairly fine powder.

Stage 3 - 4 min.
Cashew-nut and Parmesan biscuits
Tip this into a mixer bowl and add 125 g flour, 125 g butter, 1 egg, the grated 80 g Parmesan (Parmigiano Reggiano) and ½ teaspoon salt.

Stage 4 - 4 min.
Cashew-nut and Parmesan biscuits
Knead together until the dough is evenly mixed.

Stage 5 - 3 min.
Cashew-nut and Parmesan biscuits
Transfer the dough onto a sheet of baking paper and shape into a flattened square or rectangle.

Stage 6 - 1 hour
Cashew-nut and Parmesan biscuits
Lay a second sheet of baking paper on top and roll out with a rolling pin. Try to keep the rectangular shape as far as possible to minimise offcuts (stage 8).

Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

Stage 7 - 2 min.
Cashew-nut and Parmesan biscuits
Preheat the oven to 360°F (180°C)

If necessary, finish rolling out the dough (still with the paper on), then remove the top paper.

Stage 8 - 7 min.
Cashew-nut and Parmesan biscuits
Cut out small biscuits with a cutter in your preferred shape. Here they are simple rectangles.

Stage 9
Cashew-nut and Parmesan biscuits
Transfer the biscuits as you cut them onto the baking sheet you lined with paper in stage 7.

Stage 10 - 2 min.
Cashew-nut and Parmesan biscuits
If possible, glaze the tops, using a brush.

Stage 11 - 1 min.
Cashew-nut and Parmesan biscuits
Also, if you can, scatter a little extra grated Parmesan over the biscuits.

Stage 12 - 30 min.
Cashew-nut and Parmesan biscuits
Bake for 30 minutes.

Stage 13
Cashew-nut and Parmesan biscuits
Leave to cool on a wire rack.
If you can, toast the cashew nuts before blending them in stage 1; your biscuits will taste much better.
A few days in an air-tight jar or tin.
Home made.

Usually to make fruit jellies or (fruit "paste"), it's like jam but you need to cook fruit pulp and sugar much longer. Unfortunately, this long cooking is bad for both vitamins and flavour. In this recipe we use a special jam gelling agent, to reduce cooking time as much as possible .

  • I made these and was very excited, BUT. I found that they were incredibly fatty and think it probably needs maximum 80g butter. Also, grinding up the cashews finely means you don't really get Alimuch of the flavour of them - even though I roasted them first. Next time I would reduce the butter and grind the cashews much less.
