    These biscuits are perfect for a snack, and can also be used a posh canape. They are very quick and easy to make, using pretty much store cupboard ingredients.

    1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease a baking tray or line with parchment.
    2. In a food processor, add the butter, flour, salt, cayenne pepper, mustard and cheeses. Process together, then as the mixture starts to combine, pulse it till the mixture looks clumpy.
    3. Put it onto a floured surface, then knead it until it is smooth. Wrap in clingfilm, and let it chill in fridge for 40 minutes (I have left it for 20, but they are better the more you chill it!).
    4. Once chilled, place on a flour surface, and roll out to about 3mm thick. Cut out using biscuit cutters, to whatever shape you want.
    5. Brush a little of the beaten egg on top, using a small brush, and then sprinkle on some of the leftover Parmesan cheese!
    6. Bake until they are crisp and golden. They usually take around 10 minutes, depending on size. Use a palette knife to lift them off the tray, and let them cool on a rack.
