Hi everyone! I was wondering if anyone could provide advise/insight re. the baking of pastry in individual aluminium dariole molds.

I've tried so many different things but the base pastry always come out unbaked while the tops are as baked as they can go without burning them.

I just cant get the balance; I've tried blind baking but then the lids can't seal the pie, tried using different pastries [sourcream, shortcrust, ruff-puff, puff pastry rolled through the pasta machine- everything but alas!] I've even tried using a blow torch to try and bake the pastry while in the mold- still nothing.

I'm at my wits end so I could really use some help

 

this is kind of what I'm shooting at

These are the moulds I'm using; The closest I've got was using empty aluminium tuna cans

Any help would be massively appreciated
