TGIF – Provence style easy appetizers

Tapas have become hugely popular around the world.  I have noticed in my 7 years living in Norway that people really enjoy this type of snaking.  Meat balls, cheese on crips, nuts etc … Tapas can be declined in so many ways.

I would like to propose you an appetizer inspired from what we eat in France.  I prepared last week on Saturday. Its easy to make and very tasty.

Provence  style appetizers


  • 250 grams of flour ( wheat or spelt )
  • 125 grams of butter
  • 125 grams of sugar
  • 1 egg
  • cherry tomatoes
  • Provence Herbs ( Rosmarin, Thyme,  …) but also tarragon and mustard or marjoram .
  1. Mix the flour, butter (it has to be taken out of the fridge 1 hour before), the egg.
  2. Knead the dough during 3 minutes (I use a Kitchen Aid) and let it rest for 30 minutes.
  3. Roll the dough to a thickness of 4 to 5 millimetres and lay it on a baking sheet.
  4. Prick the dough ( so that it does not swell.)
  5. Cut the dough in small square of 5 cm by 5 cm
  6. Sprinkle Provence Herbs on all squares ( or tarragon)
  7. Cut the cherry tomatoes and put on half on each squares of dough.
  8. Set in the oven at 180 c during 10 minutes.
