Sour Cream Shortcrust Pastry


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C fan-forced (200°C conventional). Grease 24 (1½ tablespoon/30ml) mini muffin pan holes.
  2. Unroll the pastry and place on a floured benchtop. Using a 5.5cm round cutter, cut 24 rounds of pastry from the dough. Prick each disk 2-3 times with the tines of a fork. Press pastry rounds into prepared pan holes. Refrigerate for 15 minutes. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until puffed and golden. Set aside to cool.
  3. Combine the mayonnaise, sour cream, lemon rind and juice, and garlic in a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Fold in the celeriac, finely chopped chives and crab. Spoon heaped teaspoons of the crab mixture into tart shells.
  4. Place tartlets on a serving platter. Serve topped with salmon roe and chopped chives.
