My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Preheat the oven 375.
- 2Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface so it's slightly thinner than straight from the pack.
- 3Then cut out 18-20 rounds with a 3 inch fluted cutter, re-rolling the trimmings.
- 4Use the rounds to line two deep 12-hole tart tins (not muffin tins). If you only have a regular-sized, 12-hole tart tin you will be able to make a few more slightly shallower tarts.
- 5Beat the eggs in a large bowl and combine with the rest of the ingredients except the walnuts.
- 6Tip this mixture into a pan and stir continuously for 3-4 minutes until the butter melts, and the mixture bubbles and starts to thicken. It should be thick enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon. Don't overcook, and be sure to stir all the time as the mixture can easily burn.
- 7Remove from the heat and stir in the nuts.
- 8Spoon the filling into the unbaked tart shells so it's level with the pastry.
- 9Bake for 15-18 minutes until set and pale golden.
- 10Leave in the tin to cool for a few minutes before lifting out on to a wire rack.
- 11Serve warm or cold.
