Preheat oven to 200C (180C fan-forced).

Unroll the pastry, cut sheet in half, then cut each half in half again, cut each piece of pastry into three so you end up with 12 rectangles. You can trim the pastry to make a square but it’s not necessary.  Line a 12-hole muffin tin with the pieces of pastry, line each one with a piece of baking paper, then fill each one with baking weights (or chickpeas).

Bake in a pre-heated oven for 20 minutes, remove from oven and remove the paper and weights, return to oven for a further 5 to 8 minutes until the base of the tarts is golden.  Once cooked, set to one side to cool.
