  1. Preheat oven to 190°C (170°C for fan assisted)/375°F/Gas Mark 5.
  2. Halve the pastry, roll out to a thickness of 3mm and rest for 5 minutes. Using a 10cm fluted cutter, cut circles of pastry and transfer to non-stick baking sheets. Prick the bases and bake in the oven for 12 minutes until golden brown. Then cool on a rack.
