Anchovy and Olive Savoury Biscuits

Anchovy and Olive Savoury Biscuits

Posted 2018-08-12 by finyfollow

These are unusual and moorish.

Great for an in between snack when you do not want something with sugar in it.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes plus 20 minutes fridge
Cooking Time: 20 minutes (in two batches)
Serves: approx 30 biscuits

Ingredients
1 cup plain flour
115 g butter, cold
115 g cheese, grated
45 g anchovy fillets (I use John West), drained and chopped roughly
50 g black pitted olives, chopped roughly
½ tsp cayenne pepper

Method
  • Put the flour, butter, cheese, olives, anchovies and cayenne in a food processor.

  • Process by pulsing until the mixture forms one ball.


  • Wrap the dough in some cling wrap, and put in the fridge for about 20 minutes.


  • Preheat the oven to 200°/180 fan forced,

  • Roll out the dough on a floured surface, so that it is thin.

  • Cut the dough into about 5 cm wide strips.

  • Then cut across each strip in alternate directions to form a triangle. I did this all on baking paper.


  • Put them on a new sheet of baking paper on a pan, and bake for about 10 minutes, checking after about 8 to make sure they are not burnt.

  • Bake till they start to change colour, and cool on a wire rack.

  • Serve when cold - it does not matter if shapes are not very even!

  • Serve as an entre with cut up carrots and celery, or just snack throughout the day - also good in lunch boxes.

  • I put some cut olives on a few before baking.
