|Bake without trimming the edges|
Every time I've tried to use them before, during blind baking, the pastry has receded into a disc in the middle, leaving me with no retaining edges. But this time, it was going to be different.
I'm sure it was some random TV watch during my maternity leave when I was in the middle of a marathon breastfeeding session or another (altogether we kept it up for15 months - how proud am I of that!) that I happened across Cookery School on Channel 4 with Gizzi Erskine and Richard Corrigan.
|Wohoo, I have sides|
|The finished tartlet.|
Only problem was that as the tins are so shallow, the raspberries (despite me lying them sideways and squashing them a bit) poked out of the surface of the ganache so the finished pie looks a bit lumpy.
It's still setting as I type. I'm off to sample it later and will post a pic of the presented version tomorrow but I came upstairs to write my blog and book tickets to go and see Santa at Longleat tomorrow - wheeee! Even chocolate raspberry tart isn't as important as your child's first visit to Father Christmas.
The recipe is in this month's Good Food Magazine and there's clip from the programme on YouTube.
