Mix until you obtain a homogeneous dough – note that it does not require much kneading.

Wrap the dough in cling film and put it in the fridge.

After about half an hour take the dough from the fridge, flour a pastry board, use a rolling pin to roll out the dough in a 1/2 cm thick sheet.

Heat the oven to 180° C.

Cut out the stretched dough into circles, or use a knife to get squares.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and arrange the cookies.
Place in the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes at 180° C in a ventilated oven. The cooking time depends on the type of oven; if you do not have the fan function, you can extend the cooking time by a few minutes.
Allow to cool and store in airtight container.

Tips

If the dough seems too hard (which might happen depending on the type of flour or the amount of oil present in the paté), you can add a spoonful of white wine or an extra teaspoon of olive paté.
Instead of the olive paté you can use sundried tomato paté, artichoke paté, or add a few teaspoons of chilli paté. This dough can be made either by hand or in a mixer, but you should not work it too much, to avoid activating the gluten in the flour. If you like, you can add 1 gram of baking powder to the dough. Instead of almond flour you can blend walnuts, or use whole-meal flour, or rice flour.
