These bites of goodness are buttery-crisp & have a truly wonderful flavor. I made this easy quick-fix as written, but the mixture was very soft & sticky. I would not have been able to roll it that way, so I piled it on a sheet of parchment paper, used a gentle rolling motion to get to a log that somewhat resembled a sausage & put it in my freezer. When very firm, I was able to roll it to more of the sausage shape. I chilled it again for a bit, quickly sliced it w/a sharp knife & carefully transferred the disks to my baking sheet. They were done faster than expected at 15 min baking time. They are very delicate & must be handled carefully, but *man are they good* ! They will be made again w/a little experimentation. I want to see if reducing the butter by 1T & increasing the flour & Parmesan by 1T will create a more dough-like mixture & make the rolling process easier w/o loss of flavor. I will also try adding about 1/4 tsp garlic then as well, which I see as a great add! Thx for sharing this great recipe w/us. It is certainly among the best bite-size finger-food I have made. :-)

Went over well at our wine tasting. I made the dough a few days in advance and kept it rolled in saran in the fridge - kept perfectly.

Very easy to make. They are excellent nibbles plain or top with a bit of goat's cheese and caramelised red onion chutney
