A secret recipe given to me by an ex dinner lady.

Place the butter and sugar into a saucepan and stir over a low heat until melted.

In a large bowl, mix the cornflour to a paste with a little of the milk, then add the rest of the milk.

Whisk into the butter and sugar and cook stirring until the mixture thickens.

Strain into the cooked pastry case and leave to cool. Serve with double cream.

how to make this recipe dairy free...

Use dairy free margarine in the pastry and in the filling in place of butter.

Use your choice of dairy free milk in place of milk. Serve with soya cream or dairy free alternative.
