Method

For the dough

  • In a bowl, add the flour, butter (cut into cubes), parmesan cheese, egg, pepper, salt, thyme and mix with your hands until you have a thick dough.
  • Wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.

For the filling

  • In a bowl, add the feta cheese and crumble it with a fork.
  • Add the cream cheese, chili flakes, thyme and mix.

To assemble

  • Preheat the oven over 170ο C (340* F) Set to Fan.
  • Line parchment paper on the kitchen counter and dust with flour. Place the dough on top, dust with flour and cover with plastic wrap.
  • Roll out with a rolling pin until you have a very thin dough. If the dough is sticking to the parchment paper, add some more flour.
  • Use a 10 cm cookie cutter to cut 6 pieces from the dough.
  • Knead the rest of the dough and cut 6 pieces with a 7 cm cookie cutter.
  • In a muffin pan, place the 10 cm pieces. Press with your hands so they will take the shape of the pan. Make sure they stick out a little so that the small pieces will not get stuck.
  • Place 1 tablespoon of filling in each muffin and smooth it with a spoon.
  • Brush the overhanging parts of the dough with the egg yolk and cover with the smaller pieces. Press the overhanging part with your hands so that there is no space.
  • Brush with the rest of the egg yolk and bake for 40 minutes.
  • Serve with rocket, cherry tomatoes, grated feta cheese, olive oil and thyme.
