Roll out the pastry and cut out the amount of bases   required. Grease the cake tray and put in the pastry cases. Bake them in a 200   degree oven for 10 minutes or until they start to brown, leave to cool. Peel and   core the apples and cut them into slices.

Cover the bottom of a saucepan with water and add   the apple. Cook until soft and sauce like,adding more water if it starts to   catch. Leave to cool.

One the apple and pastry is cool spread a small   layer of apple in the bottom of the pastry case. Then make the custard using he   instructions on the packet but replacing the milk with soya milk. If you are   using sweetened soya milk you will find you will need less sugar. I tend to make   the mixture extra thick as I find this is nicer in the tarts. Once the custard   is ready spoon some on the top of the tarts. Eat warm or cold. Great served with   soya cream.
They can also be made with jam instead of apple or   just with custard. You can even add some cocoa powder to the custard and make   them chocolate custard tarts.
