Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Line a baking sheet with baking parchment. Mix together the cinnamon and caster sugar.

  2. Scatter the cinnamon sugar over the work surface, then roll out the pastry on top of the sugar, to about the thickness of 2 x £1 coins. Using a large dinner plate, cut out a neat round (approx 23cm is fine) and lift onto the lined baking sheet. Prick the pastry all over with a fork and crimp round the edge with finger and thumb. Chill for 15 mins.

  3. Bake the pastry in the oven for 10-12 mins, or until dry and biscuity. Allow to cool completely before carefully transferring to a serving plate.

  4. Beat the soft cheese with the orange juice and zest, adding the icing sugar to taste. Spread this over the pastry base leaving a 2.5cm border around the edge. Top the orange cream with the blueberries and lightly dust with icing sugar just before serving.

Do not use all the orange juice! Comes out all runny
Add slowly and taste

The kids loved this, but the strawberry toffee tart was better

Quick and delicious summer dessert. I used black currant instead of blueberries and baked separate one-serving square tarts.
