    Empty pastry into your chilled glass bowl and using your hands kneed together into a smooth dough ball

  • 6.

    Tip dough onto a floured surface and roll out to 5cm thick in a long rectangle shape that’s longer than your tart pan

    Add to your greased pie tin, trim the edges and pierce the bottom of the pastry with a fork multiple times

    Roll remaining dough into a ball and roll out to 5cm thick and cut out small heart shapes with a cookie cutter and place on a separate greased tray

    Blind bake your tart without filling and extra shapes, bake for 20 minutes, then remove beads and bake for 5-10 more minutes until the crust is lightly browned

    Gently simmer on a lower heat for 5-10 mins until it’s lost about 1/3 of its original liquid, then vigorously stir through corn flour until it thickens
