Mini Tartlets Filled with Deliciousness

My best friend came back from uni today and we saw each other for the first time in weeks! It was the best day, and we spent some time making little tartlets together – they looked beautiful in the sunshine :)

They’re not very vegan, so I couldn’t have any, but only because we made our own pastry from scratch, you can get ready-made shortcrust pastry from the supermarket and it’s much cheaper, but much more boring.

The recipe’s from The Vintage Tea Party book by Angel Adoree

The only sunny day in London

Ingredients

115g plain butter

40g icing sugar

2 egg yolks

125g plain flour

Pinch of salt

Any fillings you want (we used a range of whipped cream, chocolate cream and lemon curd all topped with fresh fruit)

Method

  1. Combine the flour, icing sugar and salt. Add the butter and mix with your hands until it gets to a texture of pea-sized crumbs, then add the egg yolks and rub in until large, moist crumbs form. Turn the pastry out onto a floured surface and form into a ball – divide in half, cover in cling film and put in the fridge for an hour
  2. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Roll out the pastry until it’s fairly thin and cut into circles – we used drinking glasses to make the circles – then press them into a 12-hole baking tray
  3. Bake for 15 minutes, then let them cool down before removing them from the tin
  4. When they’re at room temperature, fill them with whatever you please

Makes 12 tartlets

Pastry on its own is 126 calories per tart – obviously the filling will add more, but it’s up to you what you add :)
