  1. Step 1:

    Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C fan, 350°F, gas mark 4). Grease 6 10cm loose based pastry tins.

  2. Step 2:

    Flour the board and lightly knead the chilled pastry. Roll out and using a cutter, cut 6 discs and shape into tin. Prick the base of the pastry.

  3. Step 3:

    For the topping, cream the butter, sugar and almonds together until pale and fluffy, then add eggs, 1 at a time beating well each time. Finally add the almond extract.

  4. Step 4:

    Fill the tarts with the blueberries and drizzle over the cassis. Spoon over the topping and lightly press the mixture down, scattering over the almonds.

  5. Step 5:

    Place in the oven for 25 minutes, directly on to the shelf and bake until golden brown.

  6. Step 6:

    For the cassis sabayon, whisk together the egg yolks and sugar in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water until thickened and frothy. When the mixture has cooled, whisk in the creme de cassis.

  7. Step 7:

    Serve the tarts with a drizzle of the cassis sabayon over the top.
