Layer your favourite cheese, pickle and chutney atop these delicious spelt biscuits speckled with assorted seeds.


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4 and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.

  2. Mix all the ingredients except the water together in a large mixing bowl. Add the water a little at a time, and bring the mixture together with your hands to form a dough.

  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to £1 thickness using a rolling pin. Cut into 5cm/2in rounds and transfer to the lined baking tray. Bake for 10 minutes, or until crisp and lightly golden-brown. Serve with cheese.
