I love Parsnips. They were on offer this week so I couldn’t resist.
Roasted one day and in soup another.
The other day I tried adding them to biscuits and now I am hooked. Because there is icing sugar in the mix they cross the line from savoury to sweet. Just as nice with a cup of coffee or with a new duck pâté I made (recipe coming next week) to try with the biscuits.
Now, will someone please put the lid on that tin and hide the biscuits in the cupboard.
Preheat oven to 180ºC
125g Unsalted Butter
100g Icing Sugar sifted
200g Plain Flour
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
Pinch of salt
100g Parsnips, peeled and grated
Line two baking sheets with baking parchment paper. Cream butter until soft & mix in the sugar until blended then drizzle in the olive oil & mix until combined. Add the flour & salt and mix gently but thoroughly until smooth, then add the parsnips & mix until thoroughly incorporated into the mixture. Cut 2 sheets of parchment paper and spread a sheet out on the work table, place the dough in the centre and cover with the other sheet. Roll out the dough until it is about ¼ inch thick (the dough is very sticky thus the parchment). Refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes or overnight. Cut into 2” rounds and place them ½” apart on prepared baking sheets. Form trimmings into a log, cut into rounds. Bake until golden, about 15 minutes. Remove from oven and cool on wire racks.
