Canapés are one of my favourite foods. I love that you can just keep popping them into your mouth, although dangerous as you lose track of how many you have actually eaten....
These goats cheese variety certainly fall into the category of 'How many have I eaten?' and are incredibly moreish especially just out of the oven. If you really want to up your canapés game I suggest serving these with a dollop of chutney on top.
150g plain flour
100g butter, softened
125g goat's cheese
1 large egg yolk, beaten
½ tsp salt
Preheat the oven to 190°C and line a baking tray with baking paper.
Put the flour and butter in a large bowl and mix together with your finger until the mixture forms a very soft dough, it's going to be the softest dough you ever did see.
Crumble in the goat’s cheese and add the egg and salt. Mix again to combine and shape the dough into a ball. Wrap the dough in cling film and chill in the freezer for an hour, or until firm.
Roll the dough out between two sheets of cling film to about pound coin thickness. Use a circle cutter to cut out 20 rounds, re-rolling the pastry as necessary. This can be very fiddly with such soft dough but persevere! Place the rounds onto the prepared baking sheet and bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes, or until golden.
Remove from the oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool. Serve warm, these would be lovely with some chutney, and eat same day!
