You can add thyme to the dough, as well as other fresh herbs (rosemary, basil, parsley, oregano). I filled my tartlets with avocado cream, salmon and egg. This is just a suggestion, you can stuff the baked cookies with your favorite mousse or even a salad. I recommend stuffing them just before serving.



  • 150 g cake flour That's it!
  • 100 g of coarse flour
  • 120 g cold butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1-2 tablespoons of cold water
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 bunch thyme

Avocado Mousse

  • 2 avocados
  • 125 g of cream cheese (e.g. Philadelphia) 
  • 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • 1 small shallot or spring onion
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin seed oil - (for color) optional
  • salt
  • pepper


  • about 300 g of sliced ​​smoked salmon
  • hard-boiled quail eggs



Thyme wash and dry. Remove the leaves from the hard stems, chop the soft stems together with the leaves.

Sift the flour into a bowl or onto a pastry board. Add thin flakes of butter to the dough, add salt. Rub the butter with flour into small crumbs with your fingers. Add thyme, egg and quickly knead everything to a smooth dough. Add 1-2 tablespoons of cold water if needed. Wrap the dough in foil and put it in the fridge for at least 1 hour.

Take the dough out of the fridge onto the pastry board and leave it for 10 minutes. Then roll out the dough thinly on a lightly floured board. Cut out circles about 1 cm larger than the diameter of the mold. Fill the molds with the dough, press down and prick with a fork.

Preheat the oven to 200°C. Bake the tartlets for about 30 minutes (small cookies - bunnies take less time). Carefully remove the baked tartlets from the molds and cool them on a wire rack.

Avocado Mousse

Cut the avocado in half, remove the pit and scoop out the pulp, sprinkle with lemon juice. Cut the shallot into small cubes, chop the spring onions. With a fork, mash the avocado pulp with cream cheese and pumpkin seed oil. Add the shallot, season with salt and pepper and mix.
