For the pastry
175g/6oz gluten free plain flour, plus extra for dusting
2 tbsp icing sugar
100g/3½oz lactose free butter, chilled, cut into small pieces
1 free-range egg, beaten
For the crème pâtissière
150ml/5fl oz whole lactose free milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
25g/1oz caster sugar
25g/1oz gluten free plain flour
1 free-range egg
75ml/2½fl oz lactose free double cream
For the topping
4 tbsp raspberry jam
Serves - 4
Preheat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6. To make the pastry, put the gluten free flour, icing sugar and lactose free butter in a food processor and pulse until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
Add the egg and blend again until it is just combined and forms a ball.
Dust a work surface with gluten free flour and tip the dough onto it. Roll the gluten free pastry out with a rolling pin.
Cut it into eight rounds a little bigger than the tins (as you will need to line the sides also). Line each tin with a disc of pastry and chill in the fridge for 20 minutes.
To bake blind, prick the pastry bases, line the tins with baking parchment, fill with baking beans and bake in the oven for 10 minutes.
Carefully remove the beans and paper and return the bases to the oven for 5 minutes, until cooked and a pale golden-brown. Set aside to cool.
Meanwhile, to make the crème pâtissière, put the lactose free milk and vanilla in a saucepan. Heat until it is just scalding (you'll just be able to dip your finger in).
Put the sugar, gluten free flour and egg in a mixing bowl and whisk. Pour in half the hot lactose free milk and whisk until smooth. Pour in the remaining hot lactose free milk.
Pour the mixture back into the saucepan and cook over a low heat, stirring all the time, until very thick – this could take about 2–3 minutes.
Pour into a bowl, cover with cling film and chill in the fridge until cold.
Once cold, pour in the lactose free double cream, while whisking constantly. Spoon the crème pâtissière into the tart cases and chill in the fridge.
To make the glaze, heat the jam in a saucepan with a tablespoon of water and whisk to combine. Strain the liquid through a sieve into a small bowl.
Arrange the raspberries standing upright on the crème pâtissière and brush the warm glaze over the top.
