I’ve made these biscuits a lot of times and people always like them. If you prefer you can use kalamata olives instead of green olives. Or stuffed olives, like I did last time.

Ingredients (makes 40 biscuits)

  • 300 grams white spelt flour
  • 150 grams unsalted butter, cut in small cubes
  • 100 grams green olives, chopped
  • 80 grams grated Parmesan cheese
  • salt
  • pepper
  • water

Method

  1. Preheat the oven at 180 degrees.
  2. In a bowl mix together the flour, the butter and the Parmesan. Rub them together using your fingertips, till the mixture looks like breadcrumbs.
  3. Add the olives, some salt and pepper and a couple of tablespoons of water to the bowl.
  4. Fold the dough, eventually add more water, till it holds together nicely in a ball.
  5. Roll out the dough between two pieces of baking paper. Then cut out the biscuits in the form you prefer, using a cookie cutter.
  6. Line a cookie tray with baking paper and place the biscuits on it.
  7. Bake at 180 degrees for 12-13 minutes. The bottom will be nice and brown.
  8. Prepare more biscuits using the dough left and repeat the baking in the oven.
  9. Let them cool down and store them in an airtight container for up to a week.

  • I’m not really a fan of olives, so I might try this recipe with diced ham or bacon pieces and see how it works out.

  • These look lovely. I am guessing that unsalted butter is used in the recipe because there is so much salt in the olives and Parmesan. Yum.
