  • 1 large puff pastry sheet
  • 1 egg

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C degrees and line a large baking tray with baking paper
  2. Cut the pastry into 6 or 8 square tartlets, depending on the size
  3. Place toppings of your choice onto the pastry leaving a gap around the edge
  4. Once all the tarts have been filled, brush the edges of the pastry with egg wash to help them brown up. Season with salt and pepper.

Optional* Garnish with fresh herbs if you have them for an extra flavour boost - Basil, Parsley, Mint and Thyme all work well.
