Ingredients (for 12 tarts) :


To make the pastry, put the flour into a bowl, add the icing sugar and butter then rub in the butter with fingertips or an electric mixer until it resembles fine crumbs. Stir in the egg yolk, then squeeze together with fingertips to make a dough, adding a little water if needed.

Knead lightly, then roll out thinly on a lightly floured surface. Cut out 10cm circles using a large biscuit cutter then press circles into buttered sections of a 12 hole deep muffin tin. Prick bases with a fork and chill for 15 minutes.

Line each tart with a circle of greaseproof paper and some dried lentils or baking beans and bake blind in a preheated oven set to 190°C for 10 minutes, remove paper and lentils or beans and cook for 3-4 minutes until pale golden. Leave to cool.

Remove pastry cases from the tin, arrange on a serving plate. Whip the cream with the icing sugar and elderflower cordial until it forms soft swirls. Spoon into the tart cases. Arrange the strawberries on top. Warm the redcurrant jelly in a small saucepan until melted then brush over the tarts.

Serve within 30 minutes of decorating.

Advice: If you prefer different summer fruits, try replacing the strawberries with raspberries or blueberries - you can leave these smaller fruits whole to decorate.
