Cheese and Spring onion Tarts


100g Flour
1/4 tsp Salt
75 g Butter, Cut into small cubes
1-2 Tbsp Water

1 Egg
100 g Cream
50 g Gouda Cheese, Grated
3 Spring Onions, finely chopped
Cayenne pepper


For the dough, Sieve Flour and salt together. Add in the butter and mix it with your fingers to form a crumbly texture. Add water if required and knead well to form a soft dough. Cover and keep the dough in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.

Take the dough out of the refrigerator and place it on a clean surface dusted with little flour. Roll the dough and cut small circles of about 7 1/2" diameter. You'll get about 12 pieces. Place the circles onto a muffin tray.

For the filling, Mix in the egg, cream,cheese and finely chopped spring onions. Add salt and cayenne pepper to taste and mix well with a spoon till all the items are well incorporated.

Preheat the oven to 180 Deg C.

Fill in the filling mixture into each circle in the muffin tray and bake for about 20-25 minutes.

Serve warm or cold.
