How to make savory baskets
First of all, prepare the dough, following the instructions found in the article: Savory shortcrust pastry
Then place in the fridge for 30 minutes, roll out to a thickness of 4 mm and line the previously greased and floured molds.
Prick the center with a fork:
Finally, bake in a preheated oven at 180 ° for about 15 minutes until they brown on the surface.
Meanwhile, prepare the mousse various flavors.
Divide the perfectly drained ricotta in a cloth into 4 equal parts.
In one part add the pesto. If necessary, add 1 tablespoon more.
In another part, blend together with the cooked ham
Then blend another part together with the tuna
Mix the last part with the finely chopped aromatic herbs:
Finally, keep the mousses in the fridge until use.
Remove the baskets from the oven, remove them from the molds, let them cool perfectly. Stuff the various shells with the different mousses.
Then I used classic flower sac a poche for the tuna mousse (one part I decorated with olives)
for the others I used the Wilton 1A smooth and wide nozzle and decorated the pesto mousse with cherry tomatoes.
Once ready, you can keep them in the fridge until ready to serve!

In the fridge for about 2 days. Alternatively, you can make the shells and keep them closed in plastic food bags for up to 10 days before stuffing them.
