Author Notes: I made these deliciously rich and almost guilt free tarts at work today with a couple of students, they really enjoyed building these cute little treats. We also did strawberry jam tarts too which went down well. Customers loved them, even the non vegans and the head chef wolfed his down, despite being against anything vegan!Komal

  3. Roll out to the thickness of a pound coin and cut out circles with a cutter or by using a glass and going round the outside with a knife
