  • 2 cups fresh Parmesan cheese, finely grated
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 1/2 tsp oregano (or more for a stronger taste)
  • 1 heaped tbsp pine nuts


  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper or silpat.
  2. If your Parmesan isn't fine enough, start by pulsing it a few seconds in your food processor. In a large bowl, combine Parmesan, flour and oregano.
  3. Place a round cookie cutter on the prepared baking sheet. Carefully sprinkle a tablespoon of cheese mixture into the cutter and smooth the surface.. Remove the cutter. Repeat with the remaining mixture, leaving a 1-inch gap between each melt. Sprinkle with pine nuts.
  4. Bake in oven for 5-7 minutes or until light golden. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.


I decided to use only 1/2 tsp of dried oregano because I wanted the taste to be subtle. Don't hesitate to use 1 tsp for a stronger flavor.
