4 Individual Treacle Tarts Recipe To Share
A great British classic, treacle tarts are the perfect winter warmer when served with proper vanilla ice cream and a light dusting of icing sugar.
This recipe makes 4 individual treacle tarts so you can eat 2 today and leave the other 2 till tomorrow!
But then again, you may have friends over, so I guess you’ll have to share.
A bit rude otherwise!

I first came across this idea in [amazon_textlink asin=’1849759375′ text=’Afternoon Tea at Bramble Cafe’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’simplebakesan-21′ marketplace=’UK’ link_id=’5c29faed-0da5-11e8-a97f-85d41b0b4bf7′] by Mat Follas but changed the recipe slightly to suit my purposes. It’s a lovely book with some beautiful recipes and photographs of classic afternoon tea food recipes.
The recipe uses shortcrust pastry to line the four [amazon_textlink asin=’B01GR91JQG’ text=’round fluted mini tart tins’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’simplebakesan-21′ marketplace=’UK’ link_id=’8a7c6dca-0da7-11e8-84ad-8f7fc98d16e1′].
