I love a good sable, and normally think of them as sweet or as the base of a cheesecake or tart…so these are a savoury take on a sable. Crumbly, buttery, little bites of yum, they are perfect for the Christmas entertaining platter. Get out the dried fruit, a few nuts, some good cheese and these…or box them up and use them as gifts. Maybe save the egg whites and go ahead and make that Crio Bru Pavlova you are dreaming about!
- 50 g mature cheddar
- 30 g parmesan plus extra
- 100 g unsalted butter, cubed

- 2 egg yolks, hard boiled

- Sesame seeds to garnish
Preheat oven to 180ºC and line a baking tray with paper.
Place cheeses into Thermomix bowl and mill 10 sec/speed 1o.
Add remaining ingredients except seeds and blend 6 sec/speed 6.
Tip out onto floured Silpat mat and push together with hands.
Roll into small balls and place onto prepared tray. Sprinkle with seeds and extra grated Parmesn. Flatten with a piece of baking paper between the biscuit and the MC to form rounds.
