Prepare the shortcrust pastry with sesame seeds by mixing 150 g flour, 120 g butter, 1 egg, 5 g salt and 50 g sesame seeds in a food processor bowl.

Mix until homogeneous, then form into a thick cake and wrap in stretch plastic film and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

Stage 2 - 2 hours

Preheat the oven to 200°C (390°F).

Roll out the pastry into a large rectangle as evenly as you can (to avoid offcuts as far as possible). Prick all over.

Stage 3 - 20 min.

Stage 6 - 5 min.

Cut the foie gras into pieces barely the size of the pastry and about 1 cm (1/2 inch) thick.

Stage 7 - 10 min.

Assemble the fingers by placing each piece of foie gras on a piece of pastry.

Keep in the fridge, but take them out 30 minutes before serving to allow the flavour of the foie gras to develop fully.

Stage 8

Possible variation: put a thinner slice of foie gras between 2 pieces of pastry that has been scattered with grated gruyère before baking.

Remarks

The pastry can be prepared several days in advance if it is kept tightly wrapped in stretch film in the fridge.

The number of fingers indicated is only approximate and will depend on the size you cut the pieces of pastry. So don't worry if you have a few more or less.

The sesame seeds can be replaced with others seeds of your choice (linseed, poppy seeds, etc.).
