I used Borg's puff pastry, Judy, which measures 24.5 cm. I must be doing something wrong when I cut the circles out.

3 circles in a row, next to each other. 9 circles without patchwork. The others are mix and match of the scraps. But still good, as they held up. Hahaha.

BZB they look lovely.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

I made up patched ones like you BZB and used them as taste tests! Next time I will just use another sheet of pastry and turn the leftovers into matchsticks or palmiers.

Matchsticks are two layers of puff pastry with jam and cream between them and dusted with icing sugar.
They can have custard in too. Here is a link to a Matchsticks recipe. http://www.aww.com.au/food/recipes/2003/10/matchsticks/
Palmers can be sweet or savoury and are puff pastry, spread with something and folded in a special way. I'll try and find some photos.
Here is a link to some Palmier photos. https://www.google.com.au/search?q=palmiers+recipe&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&hl=en-gb&client=safari

Love it, love it,love it 😄😃

Matchsticks and palmiers are fantastic ideas, Kimmy. Thanks for the links, Cookie 😘

Going to serve the tarts tomorrow. Will pop them in the airfryer.

Has anyone tried reviving the tarts in airfryer before? Settings? Would like to be very safe and avoid disasters 😁

Otherwise, I will use oven settings and reduce by 20c. What temp do you use for the oven for frozen tarts?

I'd probably do them in the oven at 180oC BZB, don't overcook them or have the heat too high or they will dry out too much.
