  4. grease a 24cm loose-bottomed tart pan.
  5. Grate chilled pastry over the pan and use clean hands to evenly press into base and sides (pastry with a high butter content can be hard to work with, and this is an easy method that doesn’t need a rolling pin) chill for 15 minutes.

  11. Carefully remove the tart from the pan, then dust with icing sugar and serve warm or cold with ice cream.
