Ingredients

  • CHEESY PASTRY
  • 50 g/2oz parmasan cheese grated
  • 100 g/4oz plain flour allpurpose flour
  • Pinch of salt and pepper
  • 75 g/3oz butter
  • egg to bind
  • FILLING
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Handful of chives
  • 100 g/4oz goats cheese or Feta
  • White grapes

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6
  • Sift the flour, salt and pepper into a bowl and rub in the butter to form a bread crumb like mixture. Now add the grated cheese and then use the beaten egg to bind the mix together to form a dough.
  • Roll out to approximately 2-3mm and press into mini flan tins (I used 3) or one big flan tin.
  • You can blind bake the pastry if you want, but I find it doesn't go soggy with this recipe so don't bother.
  • Finely chop the chives and add them to the olive oil in a small pan. Warm for 20 minutes then allow to cool and strain out the chives so you are left with the flavoured oil.
  • Crumble the goats cheese into the pastry cases and add the grapes and pour over the flavoured oil.
  • Add a little pepper to taste, but go easy on the salt as the cheese is salted already.
  • Bake for approximately 15 minutes or until the pastry is golden.
  • Let them cool on a wire rack before removing from tins.
  • Serve with a fresh green salad and ice cold wine.
