Scallops on a Parmesan biscuit

For the Parmesan biscuit:
70g of shredded Parmesan
70g of butter
70g of flour

6 scallops

100g cream cheese or light cream cheese
Chives to taste
1 tbsp olive oil
A pinch of red pimento

To make the biscuits:

-by hand, mix the softened butter (not melted) with the flour until the dough is soft and uniform
-shape the dough into a roll and cover it with plastic wrap (see photo)
-place it in the fridge for an hour
-when the dough is ready, heat the oven to 350°F
-cut the roll into slices a little less thick than a centimeter
-leave them in the oven until they're golden
-put them to the side

To make the cream cheese layer:

-soften the cream cheese (I like Trader Joe's Light Cream Cheese)
-add the chives and pimento
-add salt a pepper to taste
-place a layer of the mixture on each biscuit

To make the scallops:

-heat the olive oil in a non-stick pan
-add the 6 scallops
-cook them until golden (about 1-1.5 minutes on each side)
-cut them in half horizontally

Last step!

-place the scallops on top of the cream cheese layer
