Preparation

How to make delicious elderflower tartlets

For the pastry

  • Put the flour in a mixing bowl and stir in the salt.
  • Rub in the butter with your fingers until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  • Stir in the sugar, lemon zest and egg and mix with your hands to form a dough.
  • If the mixture is too dry, add a little water, if it is too wet add a little more flour. Shape into a ball.
  • Wrap in cling film and chill for 30 minutes.
  • Heat the oven to 150°C (130° fan) gas 2.
  • Grease 6 muffin tins or moulds.
  • Divide the pastry into 6 pieces and press into the tins.
  • Line with non-stick baking paper and baking beans and bake for 20-30 minutes until lightly golden.
  • Remove the paper and beans, prick the bases with a fork and bake for a further 5 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and leave to cool completely.

For the filling

  • Mix together the elderflower cordial, cream and sugar in a pan.
  • Heat until just boiling, then remove from the heat immediately.
  • Whisk in the lemon juice and leave to stand for 10 minutes.
  • Pour into the pastry cases and leave to cool.
  • Chill for at least 4 hours until the filling has set.
  • Sift over a little icing sugar and serve with berries.
