Plantain Tarts - Creative Monday Linky

   My family and I have always considered Plantain Tarts as our favourite pastry. Recently we bought some so I went in search of a recipe for it:

3 very ripe plantains
red food colouring
double quantity basic pie pastry

1. Boil the plantains in water for about 15 minutes or until tender.
2. Drain and mash them with a fork until they are free of lumps.
3. Add sugar, a drop or two of red food colouring, vanilla and nutmeg.
4.Roll out the pastry and cut out 8 circles using a small plate.
5.On the half of each circle place some of the plantain mixture and fold the other half over.
6. Use a fork to crimp the edges
7. Place the tarts on ungreased baking sheets and bake for 30 - 45 minutes.

Basic Pie Pastry
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup flour
½ cup butter
Iced water

1.Sift together the salt and flour
2.Add the butter and cut into smaller pieces with a knife while combining it with flour.
3. Pour in some iced water, mixing it a little at a time until the pastry holds together. Do not make it get too sticky. Add more flour if necessary.
4. Wrap pastry in foil and refrigerate until you use it.
