Directions

Line tartlet tins with the pastry (use boat-shaped tins if you have them). Bake blind in a preheated oven at 375 degrees for 10 minutes. When cold, brush the inside of the tartlet cases with the melted chocolate and leave to harden.

Mix together the cream cheese and double cream until very smooth, then add the sugar and vanilla essence. Fill the tartlet cases with the cream mixture and arrange the fruit on top. Brush with the apricot or red currant glaze, depending on the fruit used, and leave to set.
Sift the flour and salt together and rub in the butter and lard until the mixture resembles bread crumbs. Add the cheese, if using, and bind with a little cold water. Chill for 30 minutes and then roll out and use as above.

    I couldnt wait to make these having watched the episode. They are fun to make and so pretty! just dont dab on too much jelly when glazing, just a little is enough. Look for current jelly in the international aisle at your mega mart. I found some there and used that. Everyone loved these tarts and I will make some more when I get some more berries.
