Green tea and raspberry tartlets

Green tea and raspberry tartlets 1

I’m finally back after my summer break and for this recipe, which I adapted from an old recipe, I thought it was not too late to use ‘summery’ ingredients. These green tea and raspberry tartlets take no time, especially if you buy the shortcrust pastry rather than making it. The flavours are great and I also love how the red/pink of the raspberries stands out against the sharp green of the green tea custard.
