White truffles are the reason to make these savory biscuits; here they are thinly shaved and mixed into the dough that also includes grated parmesan cheese and saffron. Once formed into logs and chilled, the logs are coated in sliced almonds. At this point, the logs can be wrapped well in plastic wrap and refrigerated for one or two days or frozen for up to three months. Once baked, the biscuits will keep for a few days in an airtight container.

Ingredients

  • 200 grams all purpose flour
  • 150 grams butter (chilled and cut into small pieces)
  • 1 tablespoon parmesan cheese (grated)
  • 1 salt (level tsp.)
  • saffron
  • truffle (White, shavings)
  • almond (slices)
  • 1 egg yolk (for brushing)

Directions

  1. Combine the butter, flour, salt, parmesan cheese, a pinch of saffron, and the truffles with a mixer.
  2. Shape the dough into two cylinders approximately 3 centimeters thick, wrap them with plastic wrap and refrigerate for approximately 1 hour.
  3. Brush the dough with the lightly beaten egg yolk and coat with the almond slices, wrap the dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  4. Preheat the oven to 170C.
  5. Cut the dough into 1 centimeter thick slices and place the slices on a wax paper-lined baking sheet.
  6. Bake for approximately 15 minutes or until lightly golden.
  7. Cool the cookies completely before serving. The cookies can be stored for a few days in a tin canister.
