  • 3.

    Sift the flour onto a work surface and make a well in the centre. Add the butter mixture to the well and gradually work in the flour to form a dough

  • 4.

    Knead several times with the heel of your hand until smooth. Refrigerate until firm (3 – 4 hours).

  • 5.

    Roll pastry on a floured surface to about 5mm thick and use to line six 12cm-diameter tart tins or one 20cm tart tin. Refrigerate until firm (2 – 3 hours).

  • Frangipani:

  • 1.

    Preheat the oven to 180°C and using foil blind bake the tarts until golden (20 – 25 minutes). Remove the foil and set aside
