Fruit tarts

Week 3, session 1

I was dreading this session as I’ve got no experience making pastry. This recipe for enriched sweet pastry was great though – easy to follow and well explained. Thanks Leith’s.

I forgot to add the sugar in the first batch of pastry so had to start from scratch which was really frustrating but it’s quick to do so not the end of the world.

The pastry cases (the lightest pastry cases ever) are then filled with sweetened mascapone cream and topped with berries . I’ve not actually eaten one yet as the remaking of pastry meant that I wasn’t finished until 10pm but I can’t wait to try one tomorrow.
