Baking blind

Baking blind

Macadamia nut pastry, ready to be baked blind. Lined with baking paper and rice .

Mmmmmmm, clearly I need to press that baking paper and rice into the corners! Otherwise my pastry shell isn’t going to have much depth and the sides are going to slip down in the cooking process! Tut tut me!

I’m busy writing an assignment for my course in counselling and psychotherapy! Of course we have to eat so I have been cooking a few things, I made a delicious savoury tart today with shortcrust pastry. It was filled with fresh ricotta, chives, thinly sliced prosciutto, bocconcini and cherry tomatoes. Served cold. I will get some more posts happening with photos as soon as I have assignment finished. Mind you I have another assignment   due shortly after that, so it may be a brief burst of blogging! Bon appetit
