ingredients

makes 12 tarts
175 g (6 oz) ready made shortcrust pastry, defrosted if frozen
125 g (4 1/2 oz) low fat cottage cheese
finely grated zest of 1 lemon
25 g (1 oz) sultanas
25 g (1 oz) demerara sugar
a pinch of ground nutmeg
1 egg

method

1. Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 5/190°C/fan oven 170°C. Roll out the pastry and cut out circles. Fit them in a 12 hole patty tin.

2. Push the cottage cheese through a sieve and beat it well with the lemon zest, sultanas, sugar, nutmeg and egg.

3. Divide the filling between the pastry cases and bake for 20 minutes, until the filling is just set to the touch.

try this. As a change, try adding grated orange zest instead of lemon and using ground cinnamon instead of the nutmeg. Dust 1 teaspoon of icing sugar over the total number of tarts, if desired, which will not alter the Points.
