Savory Tomato Cookies with Basil Pesto


For the savory cookies:

  • Preheat oven to 170* C (338* F) Fan.
  • Combine the butter, brown sugar and sundried tomato paste in a bowl, using a wooden spoon.
  • In another bowl, combine the almond powder, salt and paprika. Add it to the butter mixture and mix until you create a dough that is quite oily.
  • Refrigerate for about an hour until firm.
  • Roll out the dough between 2 sheets of parchment paper, until it becomes 4-5 mm thick.
  • Use cookie cutters to cut out the dough into any size and shape you want. Transfer to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Make sure the cookies are about ½ cm thick.
  • Refrigerate again for 5 minutes.
  • Bake for 12 minutes.
  • You can use the leftover dough to make more cookies. Knead it again, roll it out and cut out more cookies.

For the basil pesto:

  • Beat the pine nuts, garlic, basil, parmesan, salt and pepper in a food processor or blender.
  • When completely combined, add the cream cheese and continue beating until it all comes together nicely.
  • Transfer to a pastry bag and pipe onto cookies, decorating them any way you like.
  • You can serve them as sandwich cookies or like little tarts.
