Pastry

  • Place the flour, icing sugar and butter into a mixer and mix until all of the butter has been incorporated
  • Add the egg and water, mix until a smooth dough has formed.
  • Remove from the machine, wrap in cling film and chill in the fridge for an hour.

Crumble

  • Add the egg and oil, mix until a crumble has formed, chill until required.

Method

  • Grease an 12 inch pastry ring and place on an baking tray.
  • Remove the pastry from the fridge and roll out to the thickness of a £1 coin, line the pastry ring.
  • Place a double layer of cling film on top of the pastry
  • Using baking beans or rice, fill the tart case and return to the fridge for 15 mins while the oven heats up to 170 º
  • Bake the tart case for 20 minutes then remove the baking beans and place back in the oven for another 5 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
  • Warm the Christmas pudding in a microwave for a couple minutes to make it easier to crumble and stir through the cold tea until it makes a loose mix.
  • Spread this evenly over the bottom of the blind baked tart case.
  • Top with the crumble mixture and bake at 170º for 25-30 minutes.
  • Allow to cool for 10 minutes and dust with icing sugar.
