- Wrap in plastic and place in the fridge for 30 minutes.
- Place the dough on a lightly floured board and roll to 3mm thick.
- Cut 5cm circles and line 24 mini muffin tins. Prick each pastry with a fork a couple of times.
- Bake blind for 15 minutes. Remove from the tins while still hot, and cool.
- Place the venison in a bowl and rub with the mustard, pepper and salt.
- Heat the oil in a frying pan until hot. Sear the venison for just 3 minutes on each side so it remains rare.

- Slice the venison as thinly as possible and fold into the tart.
- Add a dollop of creme fraiche on the top and garnish.
