Step 1

Preheat oven to 200c. Cut the butter into pieces and add to a large mixing bowl with the flour, salt and pepper.

Step 2

Rub in the butter with your fingertips until the mixture looks like fine breadcrumbs. Stir 3/4 of the cheese into the bowl with the egg yolk. Mix with a fork and then shape the dough into a ball.

Step 3

Knead the ball of dough on a lightly floured work surface until it is smooth and then roll it out to a thickness of about 5mm.

Step 4

Cut out the cookies with whichever shapes you are using, and put the cookies on to ungreased baking sheets, leaving space between the cookies for expansion.

Step 5

Brush the cookies with egg wash, and sprinkle with the remaining grated cheese.

Step 6

Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes until golden brown, then leave to cool on the trays.
