- Preheat oven to 200°C or 180°C fan-forced. Lightly spray a 24cm (base measurement) fluted tart tin with removable base with oil.

Cover pastry with baking paper and fill with pastry weights, dried beans or uncooked rice. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove paper and weights and bake for 10 minutes or until golden. Cool to room temperature.

- Sprinkle 3 teaspoons gelatine over 1 tablespoon boiling water in a small heatproof jug. Stir until gelatine has dissolved. Stir gelatine mixture into custard. Transfer to a medium heatproof bowl and cover surface with plastic wrap (to stop a skin forming). Cool. Pour custard into pastry case. Place in fridge for 2 hours.
