The Gooseberry bush in the garden is now bare and the lovely hairy green berries have been sitting in a bowl in the kitchen, waiting my attention. Here is my wonderfully simple recipe for rustic looking Mini Gooseberry Tarts.

8oz Plain Flour
Tablespoon caster sugar
Gooseberries one punnet washed and trimmed
Caster Sugar for sweetening
Cut the butter into cubes, rub the butter and flour together between your fingers, until you have a light crumbly mixture.
Mix in a tablespoon of sugar.
Use cold water to bring the mixture together, to create a firm dough.
Leave to chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Add a good sprinkle of sugar over the gooseberries. Gently fold the edge of the pastry inwards and gentle brush a little egg wash on the pastry then sprinkle over a little sugar.
Bake in a preheated oven 190 degrees for approximately 20 minutes.
Remove from oven and allow to cool on a wire rack.
