Oats, parmesan and apples are given a heady mulling spice kick to create a seriously good cheeseboard biscuit. They’re buttery, rich and flavourful – but allow the cheese you plonk on top to steal the show (as any good biscuit for cheese should).

Method

  1. Mix the oatmeal or oats, both flours, salt and spices in a large bowl. Use your fingers to rub in the butter until it’s evenly dispersed, then stir in the dried apple, parmesan, honey and apple juice. Knead lightly to form a dough. Chill for 15 minutes while you heat the oven to 160°C fan/gas 4.
  2. Roll the dough out on a floured surface until 3mm thick. Cut into squares or rounds and put on a non-stick baking sheet. Prick each biscuit with a fork and bake for 12 minutes until golden. Allow to cool before eating with cheese and fresh apples or apple chutney. They’ll keep for a week in an airtight tin.
