Preparing mini savoury tart shells - Carême Pastry

Preparing mini savoury tart shells

Everyone thinks making your own mini tart shells is time consuming and fiddly, well we want to show you a great little trick that makes it easy and super fast, and there is nothing better than a home baked tart.

Step 1 – Preheat, Work Pastry, Line muffin tin
Preheat oven to 180C (160C fan-forced) and lightly grease 1 x 6 hole muffin pan. Place pastry on a lightly floured kitchen work surface. Cut 6 x 12cm rounds of pastry from one packet of pastry. Carefully line each hole of the muffin tin.

Step 2 – Prepare, Chill and Bake
Now take a second muffin pan and place it on top of the first, carefully pressing the pastry down into each hole (a trick for blind baking). Chill in the refrigerator for 20 minutes. Place in preheated oven and bake for 10-15 minutes until golden.
