    1. Preheat your oven to 200 C / Gas 6.

    3. Using shape cutter, cut out as many circles as possible to fill your bun tin (Yorkshire pudding tin). Try not to roll out again and again as may dry out.
    4. Cover with baking parchment and then fill with dried beans, rice or pasta. Blind bake for 10 minutes (or more if needed as won't need to be cooked again).

    6. Once the raspberry mixture has turned to a sauce, remove from heat. Pass through a sieve and stir in the lemon juice. Let cool.
    7. Beat the cream to stiff peaks, then stir in the cooled coulis.
    8. Once pastry is cool, spoon or pipe the cream mixture into the pastry cases, then decorate each with whole raspberries.

    Made it as a large dish rather than the suggested small individual tartlets. Worked fine, I loved it as raspberries and lemon are my favourite for pups, husband ok'd it. Made as a quick put so not fussed about presentation but have added photo anyway. Very quick and extremely easy to make, will probably add more raspberries next time. - 26 Jul 2014
