Mary's Bakewell Tart

Today I fancied challenging myself to something that I've not made before, so opted to make a Bakewell Tart.  The recipe I opted for is a Mary Berry one which I found on-line.  If it's good enough for Mary then it is good enough for me.  You can find the recipe here.

As it is so hot here today, I couldn't be bothered to make the pastry so opted for the short cut of buying in a pack of pre-made.  There was one section of the recipe I had to re-read a couple of times to be sure that I had understood it correctly and that was the lining of the pastry case with foil.  But I guess that is to accelerate the heat distribution of the baking beans.  Other than that the recipe was fine.

I had a little pastry left over so made some very ropey looking jam & lemon curd tarts - I'm sure they'll taste wonderful even though they don't look the best!
