Calories: 220 kcal
- 200 g plain flour I use free from fairy flour

To make the pastry
Measure the flour and both fats into a bowl, using a pastry handle or your fingertips rub the fat into the flour until you get breadcrumbs.
Stir in the sugar.
Add your egg or flaxseed egg (1tbsp flaxseed with 100ml cold water)
Begin to bring the pastry crumbs together with a wooden spoon and then tip onto a kitchen surface.
You have to knead the dough for a while to bring it together but have faith it will come together and it’s so worth it.
Once rolled into a ball pop into some clingfilm or a sandwich bag and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes
To make the filling
Make your flaxseed egg (if baking the egg free version) and set aside.
Add the spread and sugar to a bowl and beat until light in colour.
Add a spoon of the flour and combine then add the ‘egg’ once again beat well to combine.
Add the rest of the flour and enough milk until you get a smooth dropping consistency.
Finally add the almond extract
To build the tarts simply roll the pastry (knead for a minute first to prevent cracks) cut 10cm circles and line your tart tin.
Divide the blueberries between the 12 tarts
Spoon your frangipane batter over each tart, don’t worry if you’ve not completely covered the blueberries.
Pop into the oven on 200°C/180°C fan for 10-12 minutes.
Once gently browned, and the sponge is springy to the touch, remove and cool.
To finish dust lightly with icing sugar and enjoy!
As mentioned above I use Free From Fairy’s flour and recipe for pastry, again the link for that is here.
