Ingredients

  • 125 g plain flour
  • ½ tsp sweet smoked paprika
  • 100 g cold butter diced
  • 100 g Manchego cheese grated
  • 25 g dried apricots finely chopped
  • 50 g California Walnuts chopped + 25g for garnish
  • 1 medium egg

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 180oC, gas mark 4. Line 2 large baking trays with baking parchment.
  • Place the flour, paprika, a pinch sea salt and the butter in a food processor and blitz to give breadcrumbs. Add the cheese, apricots and walnuts and pulse to mix in evenly.
  • Add the egg and mix until a rough dough is formed. Roll into a cylinder about 16cm in length, wrap in clingfilm and chill until firm.
  • Cut the biscuit mix into 16-18 slices and place on the 2 trays. Roughly chop the remaining walnuts and sprinkle over the biscuits, pressing into the dough slightly. Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden round the edges, allow to cool slightly before transferring to cooling rack.
  • Great served with a cheese board.

Cooks tip

  • Try using hot paprika for a little kick. Store in an airtight container for 2-3 days.
