  • 110gButter
  • 1Large free-range egg
  • 2-3 tbspWater
  • 600mlDouble Cream
  • 100gIcing Sugar
  • 1 tspVanilla paste
  • 30gMeringue pieces
  • 10-15Strawberries, diced
  • 150mlStrawberry coulis
Method
  • Step 1Preheat your oven to 160°C.
  • Step 2For the pastry using the mixer attachment - add the flour, sugar and butter to your Desire Matte Black Food Processor bowl and blend to a breadcrumb texture.
  • Step 3Combine the egg and water and add to the mixture. Blend again until it starts to come together.
  • Step 4Transfer the pastry onto a lightly floured work surface and finish bringing the pastry together. Wrap in cling film and refrigerate for 20-30 minutes. Tip: This can be prepared in advance or the day before.
  • Step 5Remove the pastry from the fridge. Roll out to approx. 3-4mm thick and then cut out discs bigger than your tart cases. (Approx. 2-3cm larger). Lay over the top of each of the tart cases. Carefully push the pastry into the tart cases and tuck the excess pastry into the side. Dock the bottom of the pastry with a folk, line with baking paper and fill with baking beans.
  • Step 6Refrigerate for a further 20-30 minutes before cooking.
  • Step 7Cook the pastry tarts cases for 15-18 minutes then remove the baking beans and baking paper and cook for a further 5-8 minutes until golden brown. Tip: The tart cases can be prepared in advance or even the day before to save time.
  • Step 8For the filling, add the cream and sugar to a bowl and whisk until soft peaks are formed. Transfer to the piping bag.
  • Step 9To decorate, pipe some of the cream into each tart case and divide the strawberries, meringue pieces and strawberry coulis between the tarts.
