Savoury Rosemary and Parmesan Shortbread recipe

These are very unusual but are fantastic to eat with a light pate for a Christmas starter.


  • 250g flour
  • 125g butter
  • 2 tsp. caster sugar
  • 60g parmesan
  • 2 tbsp. chopped fresh rosemary or 2 tsp. dried
  • ½ tsp. paprika
  • Pinch of salt.


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/gas mark 4. Grease a baking tray.

  2. Beat the butter and sugar together until fluffy. Separately, mix the flour, parmesan, rosemary, salt and paprika together. Mix the two mixtures together until you have a smooth dough mixture.

  3. Flatten and roll out, or shape into sausages and cut into thin slices instead.

  4. Cook for 15 minutes until golden.

Serve these ever so slightly warmed or at room temperature. They're absolutely delicious with some tomato salsa.
