Cherry Tomato Tartlets

Cherry Tomato Tartlets A

This is one of the first recipes I came up with using puff (or rough puff) pastry, when I was about thirteen. It’s daringly simple, but nothing needs to be complicated in order to satisfy. And these tartlets do much more than just satisfy. Whether as a dinner party starter, mid-afternoon snack or part of a laid-back brunch, these tartlets fit the bill.

Rough Puff Pastry

I find making pastry really relaxing. The need for precision and the hands-on approach make me feel very at home. Rough puff pastry is a great alternative to shop-bought puff pastry if you want to make it yourself. It’s not the quickest thing to make but it sure is quicker than standard puff pastry. To be honest, most of the time is spent while the pastry is chilling so all-in-all not that time-consuming. Along with this I publish my Mini Onion Pithiviers recipe – a must for any dinner party!

It’s been a while since I’ve done a savoury recipe, must be starting to think I survive on sugar! Funnily enough, this is a savoury interpretation of a classic sweet bake. These pastry parcels filled with soft, tasty onion are the perfect canape, suitable for veggies and meat-eaters alike – they also freeze well.
