It is possible that this recipe might become your aperitif or your buffet’s best friend…
It’s different from the usual fingerfood we have, it’s fresh, you can prepare it as you wish, in a word it’s a yummy idea!!
How to make it? So simple.
Here is the recipe for one number.
First you will have to make a thyme savory shortbread pastry. Leave it to rest a few hours in your fridge if you can, wrapped in cling film.
Then, spread it on a silicone mat or baking sheet. Make sure to have at least 5-6 mm thickness.
Make your templates with cardboard. You will find patterns to print here. Shape the number twice.
Remove the unnecessary pastry and cook 12 minutes at 200 degrees. (you can make individual shortbread savory cookies with the remaining pastry or freeze it for further use).
Let cool down on a grid.
In the meantime, prepare your toppings. I really enjoy red pepper cream, avocado cream, humus or fish rillettes (tuna, mackerel or salmon). You can also buy toppings such as a goat cheese and beetroot cream by Albert Ménès. So good…
Then you just have to pipe the toppings.
Place the first number on your serving plate. Make big “drops” with your piping bag and nozzle and cover the whole number. Place the second identical number on top and start piping again.
Make sure, if you have several toppings, to place them exactly as on the below number.
Finally, add raw vegetables for decoration, such as radish, cherry tomatoes, carrot sticks, cucumber, etc…
Set aside in your fridge until time to enjoy!
