Smoked cheddar and ham squares
( SERVES 25 )
- Preheat oven to 200C. Score the pastry into 25 x 5cm squares.
- Press a 4.5cm round cookie cutter into each square, without cutting all the way through the pastry, to create a border. Spoon some fig paste into the centre of each round and top with ham, cheese, shallots and thyme. Drizzle with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
- Bake for 10-15 minutes or until puffed and golden.
TIP If fig paste is unavailable, you could also use quince paste for this recipe.
