    For aniseed pastry, process flour, butter, sugar and aniseed in a food processor until fine crumbs form. Whisk egg yolk and liqueur, add to flour mixture and process to combine. Turn onto a work surface, bring together with the heel of your hand, shape into a disc, cover in plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm (2-3 hours). Roll out onto a lightly floured work surface to 2mm thick, line six 6cm x 11.5cm fluted tart tins, trim edges and refrigerate until firm (30 minutes). Preheat oven to 180C, blind bake (see cook’s notes p202) for 12-15 minutes, remove weights and bake until just golden (7-8 minutes), then cool.
