90 g butter, finely diced
⅔ cup plain flour
2 tablespoons rice flour
¾ cup finely grated cheese (mix cheddar and parmesan)
1 tablespoon snipped fresh chives
- Preheat oven to 180°C (160°C fan forced). Line two large baking trays. Place butter and flours into a food processor. Blend until the mixture just comes together.
- Add cheeses and chives and blend until combined. Transfer mixture to a clean work surface and bring together to form a ball. Chill briefly if needed then roll out dough to form a log. Wrap in plastic wrap and continue to roll and shape to a log that is about 24cm long and 4cm wide. Chill if needed. Remove plastic and cut into rounds 1cm thick.
- Place rounds on prepared tray and sprinkle with a little water. Top each with cracked black pepper and sesame seeds. Bake for 15-18 min until lightly golden. Cool completely on trays before serving.
