  • 50 g (2 oz) unsalted butter, melted
  • 135 g (4 1/2 oz) pack blackcurrant jelly, cut into small pieces
  • 100 ml (3 1/2 fl oz) boiling water
  • 100 ml (3 1/2 fl oz) evaporated milk, chilled
  • 100 g (3 1/2 oz) soft cream cheese
  • 75 g (3 oz) frozen blackcurrants
  • a few fresh blackcurrants, to decorate
  • Stir the crushed biscuits into the melted butter and press into the bases of 6 x 8 cm (3 1/2 inch) loose-bottomed round tart tins. Chill while you make the filling.
  • Place the jelly in a heatproof jug and pour over the measurement water. Stir until it is fully dissolved.
