From garden to kitchen: Thyme and parmesan biscuits

I do love a good savoury biscuit. Especially one that is cheesy and crumbly, that goes incredibly well with sundried tomatoes and dips and pates, or all on its own. One that I know for certain isn't full of processed nonsense like those from the shops, because I made it with herbs from my own garden.
These thyme and parmesan biscuits tick all the boxes for me. This is a log recipe where the food processor does most of the work anyway. Plus the dough is freezable so you can make extra batches to keep and just slice and bake whenever the need arises.

Ingredients

1 and 3/4 cups plain flour
185g butter, softened
1/2 cup grated parmesan
3-4 sprigs of thyme leaves
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons milk

Method

1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius.

2. Add flour, butter, parmesan, thyme and cayenne pepper to food processor and process until it resembles bread crumbs

3. Transfer to bowl and add milk before kneading dough together on a floured surface.

4. Roll dough into a 5-cm log in diameter. Wrap in baking paper and chill in freezer for 10-15 minutes.

5.  Remove from freezer, unwrap and cut into 1cm slices. Place in lined baking tray, spaced slightly apart. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden. Cool on wire rack.

My family would be very keen to eat those all up! Friends would also be impressed as they wouldn't have expected you to have made your own crackers. Trishie, you've done it again!

You know we have all purchased biscuits from the market and many times regret it because the flavour is just off. I know these will be perfect-I think I will make them for Father's Day-

Thanks for coming by my blog and leaving a comment! These biscuits look delicious, but I'm wondering where the thyme comes in? I don't see that as an ingredient listed in the recipe. Thank you!
