These mini pastry tartlet shells are wonderful to have on hand for Christmas drinks. Other fillings could include caramelised onion and goats' cheese; a soft chicken liver pate; or simply pesto. They are also great served sweet with either mincemeat or lemon curd. (Serve soon after making or the pastry will soften.) * Chili jam is from Asian food stores.
