Ingredients

  • 115g unsalted butter, at room temperature

For the pastry

  • 75g golden caster sugar
  • 225g plain flour
  • 1 egg yolk

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/fan160C/gas 4. Make the pastry. Pulse the butter, sugar and flour in a food processor until it resembles crumbs. Add the egg yolk and 2-3 tablespoons cold water and pulse until the mixture comes together to form a ball. Turn out, cut into 8 and press into 8 x 10cm tartlet tins. Chill.
