Olive tartlet

Recipe courtesy of



  • Ready rolled puff pastry 375g
  • 1 medium egg lightly beaten
  • Crumbly goat's cheese 2 x 200g packs
  • Fragata Black Pitted Olives handful, sliced
  • Chopped parsley


  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6

  • Step 2

    Unwrap the puff pastry and using a 5cm cutter, cut out 20 rounds. Use a slightly smaller cutter to make a light dent in the pastry, creating a rim. Use a fork to make a few pricks in the centre of the pastry to stop it from rising.

  • Step 3

    Place the pastry discs on a baking sheet and brush all over with the egg. Crumble the goat’s cheese in the centre of each tartlet and scatter the olives over the top.

  • Step 4

    Cook for 15-20 minutes until pastry is puffed and golden brown. Sprinkle with the parsley and serve.
