– Caster sugar – Butter - straight from the fridge is best – Plain flour – Egg – Salt – Vanilla extract
Next turn it out onto a floured surface, bring it together with your hands and shape it into a flattened disc. Do this quickly - pastry does not like to be handled too much.
To make the passion fruit juice, scoop out the flesh of the passion fruits and press it through a fine mesh sieve. Keep stirring it around with a spoon until you have just the seeds left behind.
Now take a round cookie cutter that is slightly larger than the top of your muffin circle (I use a 4-inch cookie cutter) and cut out shapes in the pastry.
Press the pastry circles into the muffin tin. Make sure you press firmly into the tin base and sides. This will help prevent air bubbles when it bakes.
Bake the pastry in the oven for 10 minutes and then allow to cool before adding the filling.
Now bake the tarts again for 10-12 minutes until they are set. You can tap the tin and if they wobble they are not quite ready. Transfer them to a wire cooling rack to cool.
Once you are ready to serve them you can top them with some piped whipped cream and a spoonful of passionfruit pulp - or try raspberries and fresh mint leaves.
