Flourless Pastry Cases

  1. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl until it resembles soft pastry. Use fork or a blender. If the batter is too damp, add some almond meal/flour. If it’s too dry, pour a drop of water and mix.
  2. Make pastry cases. Shape the dough into a cylinder or a log with a diameter longer than the cases and cut them into circles with a desired thickness. Press each of the circles into the case, as to ensure the same form.  Place these cases on the baking tray to bake at180C/350F for 10 minutes. To ensure a perfect form, remove the cases and bake for 2 minutes until light crisp golden brown.

NOTES – For better taste, top the tarts with brandy (to whipped cream; add sweetener, whip again and put brandy. You can change their quantity according to your liking) as per the taste.
