Roll pastry out until 2mm thick and line tart tins. Line pastry with baking paper, fill with ceramic pastry weights or cooked rice. Bake for 10 minutes or until pastry is firm. Remove the rice and baking paper.
?Custard – Place soy milk in a saucepan and bring to a simmer over low heat. Remove from heat. Whisk eggs, vanilla and sugar in a bowl until combined. Quickly whisk hot soy milk into the egg mixture. Sieve if necessary. Leave to cool.
Pour the custard into the cooked pastry case. Bake in oven for 30 minutes or until just set. Remove from oven and set aside to cool.
