Thyme Biscuits with Aged Havarti

Thyme Biscuits with Aged Havarti

1 serving


Thyme crackers

  • ¼ cup rye flour
  • ⅔ cup wholemeal spelt flour or similar
  • ½ cup wheat flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1¼ cups water
  • 2 tbsp olive oil, plus a little for brushing
  • 1½ cups finely chopped thyme

Honey-roasted pecans

  • ¾ cup pecans
  • ½ cup honey

Honey marinated figs

  • 4 figs
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • a few thyme sprigs


1. For the thyme crackers: Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl (flours can be varied according to what you have in stock).

2. Add water and olive oil to the dry ingredients. Form the dough into a ball and place in the fridge for 30 minutes.

3. Roll out the dough thinly to about 1/2 centimeter thick. Cut the dough to your preferred cracker shape.

4. Brush with a little olive oil and bake the crackers in the oven at 400° F for about 15 to 20 minutes (can vary from oven to oven and depend on the type of flour). After baking and cooling, check that they are crisp - if not bake a little longer.

5. For the honey-roasted pecans: Toast the nuts lightly in a pan and spread with honey until all nuts are covered. Keep the honey-roasted pecans in a glass jar.

6. For the honey marinated figs: Quarter the figs. Stir honey with thyme and pour over the figs, letting the fruit marinate for at least 30 minutes before serving.
