Cheese cookies, Scrabble, good wine, or how to spend your free time at home?

How do you and your family spend your free time at home? My family members have their passions, everyone is different. However, we are able to integrate in one place and most often it is the kitchen. I really like family meals together, and even more their turbulent planning and preparation. We argue about who should do what, who likes what, and who wants to do something else. Then there is an agreement,  cooking together, and finally a feast  at the kitchen table.

In addition to cooking, we organize family film screenings or play board games. One of my favorite games is scrabble. The game consists in arranging words from tiles with letters, it is similar to building a crossword puzzle.

And how to combine all your passions to spend a nice evening together? We prepare and bake cookies. A glass of wine goes perfectly with salty biscuits - all my household members are of legal age. We put the game board and its elements on the table and fun is guaranteed.



250 ​​g flour

150 g of butter

150 g of hard cheese (grana padano or parmigiano reggiano)

1 tablespoon of olive oil

1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary needles

pinch of salt and pepper


Grate the cheese on a fine-mesh grater or mix it. Mix flour with grated cheese, add spices and rosemary, pieces of butter, olive oil and knead a smooth dough. Roll the kneaded dough into a rolling pin, wrap it in cling film and cool it in the fridge for at least an hour.

Preheat the oven to 180C. Take the dough out of the fridge and use a sharp knife to cut it into slices about 0.5 cm thick. Place the dough circles on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Bake the cookies for about 15-20 minutes until lightly browned. Let the baked ones cool on a grate.

Takie ciasteczka bardzo pasują mi do wieczoru w kobiecym gronie i do wina.
Muszę spróbować koniecznie jak komponują się z winem półsłodkim.
Dziękuję za spotkanie !

A z półsłodkim winem to nie wiem? Z wytrawnym komponują się idealnie 🙂

Dziękuję za ciekawy przepis. 😊 Rozmarynu u mnie dostatek wiec dlaczego nie? Spróbuję zgromadzic resztę składników i upiec. 🤩 Zdjecia będą o ile zdążę. 🤣🤣🤣U mmie duzo chętnych do degustacji. 🤣Podpowiesz gdzie kupujesz ser???


TajemniceSmaku 2020-04-07 14:13:24

Przyznam się Mariolu, że ten ser to moje ostatki zapasów przywiezionych z Włoch... ale sery tego rodzaju chyba dostępne są w większości sklepów. Może być nawet nasz bursztyn, ma być to twardy ser!

Olu, przyjemność po mojej stronie 🙂

Ciasteczka bardzo chętnie zrobię, bo takie uwielbiam. Zresztą wytrawne smaki to najbardziej moja bajka. Nawet wino spróbuję, a nie jestem jego wielką miłośniczką. I zapamiętam, że to ma być twardy ser. :D
