Rich and chocolatey without being dense, these red-hued cupcakes feature buttermilk in the batter for tang and tenderness. Meanwhile, vinegar and baking soda kick-start a chemical reaction to give the batter a lift as it bakes. White chocolate buttercream frosting is, quite literally, the icing on the cake. To top things off, candied cherries and colored sprinkles set a festive tone, though really you can decorate the cupcakes however you like.

Ingredients

  • 1 roll (ready-made puff pastry)
  • pesto
  • cherry tomatoes (thinly sliced)
  • almond slivers
  • parmesan cheese (grated)

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 190 degrees Celsius.
  2. Roll out the pastry and cut out small disk shapes.
  3. Brush each one with pesto. Add a thin slice of tomato, almonds, and sprinkle with cheese.
  4. Place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes.

These are an excellent choice for strolling buffets. We also place them in baskets around our gourmet kitchen for friends to enjoy with a pre dinner glass of Biano di Caselle!
