ingredients

  • 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

directions

  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.

notes

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.
