Step 4:

Place the dough between two sheets of parchment paper and roll until 1/4″ thick.

Step 5:

Place the tart tin down and cut around the edge. Place the pastry over each of the tart tins and press it in. Cut any excess pastry. Place non stick baking paper into each of the tart, then place pie weights. Put them in oven tray then bake in the 320F preheated oven for about 10 to 15 minutes or until lightly golden. Once done baking, let it cool.
