  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Grease and line the base of a 28cm fluted loose-bottomed tart tin with nonstick baking paper.
  2. Use the pastry to line the tin, pressing into the edges; trim. Prick the base all over with a fork. Cover with baking paper, pressing it in to hold the pastry in place, then fill with baking beans. Blind-bake for 15 mins. Remove the beans and paper and bake for 5 mins more until sandy to the touch.
  3. To make the filling, whisk the eggs, milk, cream and most of the chopped sage to combine; season.
  4. Reduce the oven to gas 3, 170°C, fan 150°C. Spread the cranberry sauce over the pastry base, then top with the cranberries. Pour in the filling, then top with the goat’s cheese and remaining chopped sage. Bake for 40-45 mins until just set, adding the whole sage leaves for the last 10 mins. Cool for 5-10 mins, then serve. Will keep in a sealed container for up to 3 days.
Tip: This recipe uses non-vegetarian cheese, but vegetarian alternatives are available.
