Ingredients
  • 3 kiwis, peeled and chopped
  • 75g caster sugar
  • 1tbsp cornflour
  • 375g pack Asda Ready Rolled Shortcrust Pastry
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1tbsp low-fat natural yogurt
  • 35g icing sugar
  • Green gel food colouring
  • 1tbsp Asda Green 100's & 1000's
Method
  • Put the kiwis, caster sugar and 1tbsp water into a small pan and bring to a simmer. Cook for 10 mins.

  • Mix the cornflour with 1tbsp water and add to the pan. Bring to the boil and cook for 1 min or until thick. Set aside to cool.

  • Preheat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Cut the pastry into 20 evenly sized squares.

  • Top 10 squares of pastry with 1tbsp each of the filing, leaving a 1cm border. Brush the edges with the egg, and top with the other pastry squares.

  • Put onto the tray and seal the edges. Prick the tops to allow steam to escape. Bake for 15-20 mins until golden. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

  • Stir together the yogurt, icing sugar and a dot of food colouring. Drizzle over the tarts and sprinkle over the 100's & 1000's.
