White chocolate and lemon tartlets

I was given John Whaite Bakes for Christmas (I was a big fan of his during Great British Bakeoff 2012), and I finally made something from it yesterday.

Very impressed that I attempted the sweet pastry from scratch

Also very pleased with my nice new baking beads for blind baking. However, lesson learnt: fill the pastry cases with more beads! Mine didn’t quite keep the deep cup shape, but it worked out anyway.

Also managed to get some biscuits out of the leftover pastry, as recommended by John 🙂
