  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Effort: easy



  • 375 g ready-to-roll puff pastry
  • butter, for greasing
  • 4 tbsp shop-bought caramelised onion jam or chutney
  • 24 pieces marinated artichokes
  • small wedge of parmesan
  • 1 tbsp thyme, leaves only
  • freshly ground salt and black pepper


1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/gas 6.

2. Lay the pastry on a worktop and cut out 24 circles using a 5-6cm round pastry cutter.

3. Place the disks on a couple of greased baking sheets. Pierce the middle of each circle with a fork and then add roughly half a teaspoon of the caramelised onions on top of each.

4. Put two pieces of artichoke and a couple of shavings of parmesan on the onions and then top each one with a few thyme leaves, salt and a twist of pepper.

5. Place in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes until they are golden and the pastry is crispy. Remove from the oven and cool for a couple of minutes. Transfer to a plate and serve hot.
