Another recipe from one of my current favorite cookbooks ~
"Simple Soirees" by Peggy Knickerbocker
Essentially a shortbread recipe flavored with good Parmesan cheese.
I made mine with aged Parmesano Reggiano which is drier than younger Parmesan. If you use the younger, moister parmesan your crackers may spread a little more than mine did.
Either way, the flavor and texture is divine ~ perfect with your favorite beverage or as a good offering on the cheese or fruit platter.
In Peggy's version each cracker is adorned with a single pine nut ~ I made some that way,
and some with tiny tips of fresh thyme;
Others with a pinch of Piment d'Espelette
(the spicy red pepper powder from the French Basque country.)
Since I changed the garnishes, I simply renamed them
Crisp, Buttery Parmesan Crackers.
Yummm, they are soo good!
