Ingredients checklist


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 180°C (fan)

Step 2

In the large mixing bowl, bring together the flour and cold, cubed butter to form a crumb consistency. Add in the cold water and work to form a dough

Step 3

Roll the dough out to a 5mm thickness on a lightly floured surface and cut out rounds, pressing each one into the muffin tray to form the tart shells. You will need to bring the dough offcuts together and re-roll to make 12

Step 4

Prick each tart case base with a fork to stop them rising and place in the oven for 15 minutes to blind bake

Step 5

While the cases are blind baking, remove the rind from the cheese and divide into 12 equal portions, then, place a portion into each tart case and return to the oven for a further 15 minutes.

Step 6

Allow to cool slightly before removing the tarts from the muffin tin, placing on a serving platter and topping each one with ½ tbsp of cranberry sauce
