Method

  1. For the pastry, place the flour and butter in a bowl and rub together until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add the salt.
  2. Gradually add water until it comes together into a dough.  Be careful not to work it too much as this will make your pastry tough. 
  3. Place in a bowl, cover and leave to rest in the fridge for half an hour.
  4. Roll the pastry out to 2mm thick, and using an 8cm cutter cut out 12 rounds. 
  5. Place a round into each hole of your muffin tray, using an offcut of the pastry to press firmly into the tray.
  6. For the filling, place the egg, milk and cream in a bowl and whisk together and add the seasoning. 
  7. Split the remaining filling ingredients evenly into the pastry cases, and pour the egg mix between the 12 pastry cases.
  8. Place in the oven at 160 degrees for 20 minutes until the filling is set and the pastry is crisp.
