Lightly grease a 22cm round loose-bottomed tart tin , carefully line the tart tin with pastry, so that it sits 0.5cm above the top of the tin. Line the pastry with baking paper and fill to top of tin with baking weights or a dried pulse (eg. chickpeas) to help support the sides and weigh the base down during cooking.


Place tart on a baking tray in preheated oven and bake for 20 minutes. Remove tart tin from oven, check pastry is lightly golden around the edges before removing beans and baking paper. Return tart tin to oven and cook for a further 10 minutes or until golden brown on base.
