  • waffle iron
  • round shape for cutting
  • cutter / blender


  • 1 sheet puff pastry rectangular
  • 6 dried tomatoes
  • 3 cherry tomatoes
  • 20 gr Mozzarella
  • 2 tbl spoon pine nuts
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tbl spoon olive oil
  • 1 tbl spoon chives fresh
  • 10 leave basil fresh
  • salt and pepper


Make the tomato pesto first:

  • Rinse the fresh tomatoes and halve them. Place these in the cutter together with the dried tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, pine nuts, Mozzarella and basil. Mix until you get a fine pesto/tapenade.
  • Chop the chives. Mix this with the pesto. Season with salt and pepper
  • Leave the puff pastry in the refrigerator for as long as possible (or put it in the freezer for 30 minutes), which makes it easier to work with. Cut circles of +/- Ø8 cm with a round shape. I was able to cut 12.
  • Place a disk of puff pastry on a plate. Spoon a spoonful of the pesto on top and cover with another disk of puff pastry. Do this also with the rest of the puff pastry.
  • Heat your waffle iron. Brush a little oil on both baking trays. Place a filled puff pastry in the middle and close your waffle iron. Depending on your device (check occasionally) it will need to bake for about 2-3 minutes.
    Place on a plate and keep warm in the oven. Repeat this with the remaining puff pastry discs.
  • You can serve these as tapas together with, for example, tzatziki or a tasty garlic sauce. My children also take them cold to school as a snack.
