Cornmeal Busters with Parmesan

Originating in Australia, busters are savory biscuits or crackers that were given this name because when you eat too many of them they become belt busters. They are made from a cheesy dough that is similar to dough made to make a pie.

Test Kitchen Tip

The busters are best served warm, but they will keep in an airtight container for several days.


Preheat oven to 450°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Cut butter into flour and cornmeal with a pastry blender until pea-sized.

Stir in Parmesan, salt, sugar, and cayenne, then stir in water to form a ball, and knead to combine.

Roll dough on a lightly floured surface to ¼-inch thick. Cut out busters with a 2-inch biscuit cutter, transfer to prepared baking sheet, and bake until lightly toasted, about 10 minutes.
