Savoury Cheese and Sesame Crackers

The holiday season is not just all about sweets (yep I really just said that), there's lot's of tasty savouries to enjoy too. Like these cheese and sesame crackers, which are just as the name describes, cheese-y sesame-y with a bit of spice.

These tasty biscuits are a perfect addition to a cheese platter, or enjoy with a glass of wine or icey cold beer. 
Cheese and Sesame Crackers
150 grams cold butter
1 1/4 cups plain flour
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 cup vintage cheddar cheese (grated)
1/2  cup parmesan cheese (grated)
sesame seeds
rock salt

To make the crackers- Add the flour and cayenne pepper to the bowl of a food processor, grate the cold butter onto the bowl over the flour. Process until crumbly.
Add the 2 cheeses and process until a dough forms. 
Turn the dough out into a lighlty floured surface and knead until smooth. 

Divide the dough in half and roll into logs about 15cm long. 

Spread the sesame seeds out on a baking tray to reduce mess. Roll the outside of each log inthe seeds until covered. 
Wrap the lengths of dough with plastic wrap and chill the fridge until firm (about 1 hour). 

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees c. and line trays with baking paper. 

Remove the plastic wrap and cut the dough into half cm rounds. Place the slices on baking trays about 3 cm apart.
 Bake for roughly 15 minutes. Allow biscuits to cool on trays.
