Cornflake Tart Filling

1. Whilst the Pastry Cases are in the oven baking let’s make the filling.

2. Melt the butter, icing sugar and golden syrup in a large bowl in the microwave. Do this on 30-second blasts and be aware the liquid mixture will be very hot!

3. Carefully pour the cornflakes into the liquid mix and stir in until all the cornflakes have been coated.

4. Place a teaspoon of jam into the bottom of each pastry case and evenly spread all over using the back of the spoon. 

5. Now using a dessert spoon, carefully spoon the cornflake mixture onto the top of the jam. Gently pat down the mixture with your spoon and add some more mixture. Repeat this process for all the pastry cases.

6. Bake in the oven for 5-6 minutes and then remove. Leave for 10 minutes to allow the cornflake mix to set and the jam to cool slightly before serving.
