There's no need to wait for Valentine's Day to enjoy these savory Parmesan, saffron and rosemary-laced pastries. The simple dough is rolled out, cut into shapes, brushed with egg and topped with salt, pepper and almonds for added crunch before baking just until golden. They'd be a great choice for a cocktail party, paired with a glass of Champagne or crisp, dry white wine.

Ingredients

  • 150 grams flour
  • 100 grams butter (cold, in pieces)
  • 10 grams parmesan cheese (grated)
  • 10 grams salt
  • 1 gram saffron (strands, soaked in warm milk)
  • fresh rosemary (roughly chopped)
  • 1 egg yolk
  • salt
  • ground black pepper
  • almond slices

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. In a bowl, add the flour, butter, cheese, salt, rosemary and saffron into a smooth dough that leaves the sides of the bowl or pastry board.
  3. With a rolling pin, roll out the dough to 1/2-centimeter thick and cut out the heart shapes.
  4. Place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
  5. Beat the egg yolk with a pinch of salt and black pepper, and brush the top of the hearts.
  6. Garnish with almonds.
  7. Bake for 15 minutes or until slightly golden.

I love trying new herbs! Chopping fresh rosemary and soaking saffron were an adventure! I think the combination of parmesan, almonds and these particular spices made a sophisticated blend of flavors! I served these at a women’s luncheon and everyone was pleased!
