Ingredients

1 cup (130g) of cherry tomatoes, cut into quarters
1 teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil
1 small pinch of Himalayan salt
1 sheet of pastry dough (260g)
¼ medium size red onion
½ cup (75g) organic goats cheese, crumbled

Instructions

  1. >>> PUFF PASTRY CUPS <<<
  2. Cut the tomatoes into quarters and season them in a bowl with a little extra virgin olive oil and salt. Put to one side
  3. Cut the onion into medium-size slices
  4. Cut the pastry dough into 9 equal parts - 5 of which you will use for the cup pastries
  5. Place the dough into a muffin tin. There’s no need to grease or oil the tin.
  6. Beat one egg, and paint it over the pastry with a brush
  7. With a fork, make some holes in the bottom of the dough - these should stop the pastry from rising too much
  8. Bake for three minutes, until the dough begins to rise.
  9. Take out of the oven and add the goat cheese, the tomatoes and the onion (in that order)
  10. Bake for another 10 minutes until the edges of the pastry are golden

  12. Use the four remaining sections of pastry to make some flat tarts
  13. With the point of a knife outline a square on the inside of the pastry - leaving a 1cm margin
  14. With a brush, cover the surface of the pastry with the beaten egg
  15. With a fork, make small holes in the smallest, innermost square
  16. Repeat steps 8 to 10
Recipe Type: Vegetarian, Quick & Easy

Notes

For a buffet it’s better to have a smaller size. If that’s the case, cut the nine parts of the sheet of pastry dough into four parts equal parts
