Here is how you make the ever so romantic heart-shaped berry tartlets:

Berry tartlets

Makes 8 medium and 20 small bite sized tartlets

Pastry:

225 g butter

200 g castor sugar

2 large eggs

500 g flour

For the filling:

180 ml (¾ cup) cream

5 × 80 g slabs white chocolate, coarsely chopped

100 g raspberries

200 g strawberries

45 ml (3 tbsp) warm apricot jam

1. For the pastry, cream the butter and sugar in a food processor until pale and fluffy. While the motor is still running, add the eggs one at a time. Mix until well incorporated. Add the flour and blend until it forms a workable dough. Cover in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.

2. Preheat the oven to 180 °C. Press the pastry into 8 heart-shaped tartlet tins and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Blind bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden and cooked. Set aside to cool down.

3. For the filling, bring the cream to boil in a small saucepan. Pour it over the chocolate and stir until smooth. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

4. Whisk the mixture, using an electric mixer, until light and fluffy. Spoon it into the tartlets and top with raspberries and strawberries. Brush the fruit with apricot jam and serve.
