Method

  1. Heat the oven to Mark 7/220°C. Cut the pastry into 6 squares and score a 1cm border inside each. Prick inside the border with a fork, arrange on a baking tray and bake for 10-15 mins or until pale golden and risen. Remove from the oven and turn heat down to Mark 4/180°C.
  2. Press down the middle of each square to create a case. Spread 1tsp raspberry jam over the base of each case.
  3. Whisk the custard with the egg and divide evenly between the cases. Dot with the raspberries and bake for 15-20 mins or until just set.
  4. Remove from the oven and cool slightly before serving. Sprinkle with icing sugar.
