Putting it all together:

Prepare a muffin tin by lightly flouring.  Set aside.  Roll out pastry on a well floured surface and cut out circles slightly larger muffin tin openings.  Gently press into muffin tins to create a shell.  Continue filling rest of muffin tins with remaining pastry.
Pour well mixed filling into each prepared pastry shell and fill no more than 3/4 up the side of the pastry.

Bake for 10-12 minutes.
