175g plain flour, plus extra for dusting
75g chilled unsalted butter, cubed
1 large egg, beaten
Salt and black pepper


1 tbsp olive oil
2 onions, finely chopped
1 tbsp chopped fresh thyme leaves
2 large eggs, beaten
150ml double cream
12 cherry tomatoes, halved
25g Parmesan cheese, finely grated
Salt and black pepper
  1. To make the pastry, put the flour and butter into a bowl of a food processor with a little seasoning. Whizz until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add the egg and 1 tablespoon of water and whizz until the mixture forms a ball.
  2. Roll out the pastry on a clean, lightly floured work surface to 5mm thick, then cut into 24 rounds using a 5cm fluted round cutter. Line each hole of 2 x 12-hole deep mini bun tins with the pastry circles and prick the bases with a fork. Chill in the fridge.
  3. Preheat the oven to 200C / 400F / Gas Mark 6.
  4. To make the filling, heat the olive oil in a saucepan over a low heat. Add the onion and sauté for 5 minutes until soft. Add the thyme leaves, season to taste and leave to cool. Whisk the eggs and cream together in a jug.
  5. Remove the pastry from the fridge and divide the cooked onion evenly between the pastry cases. Top each with a cherry tomato half, cut side up. Pour over the egg and cream mixture and sprinkle the Parmesan cheese over the tarts. Bake the tarts for about 15 minutes, until golden on top and crisp underneath.
